Colorado Dance Curriculum Project

The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) is proud to present the K-12 dance curriculum samples created by Colorado educators, practitioners and teachers.  In the fall of 2012 several dance educators worked together to translate the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS) for dance into curriculum. These curriculum samples offer possible options for sequencing the concepts, skills, and content of the CAS across a course or year.  Together, the samples are intended to support districts’ transition to the CAS and the development of standards-based instructional practices.  These curriculum samples are a rich resource for all dance educators in the state of Colorado!
