West Park Cultural Center’s DanceLogic Now Accepting Fall 2022 Registrations
danceLogic is a space where creativity lives in the arts and science, here young girls have endless possibilities
PHILADELPHIA, PA, USA, September 21, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — West Park People’s Cultural Center danceLogic program is back this fall and taking registrations! This unique program combines the art of dance and computer coding, where girls ages 10-10 learn industry-standard coding that inspires dance choreography. danceLogic inspires girls, young women, and especially women of color to explore the world of STEAM. Students learn the mechanics of choreography and coding, leading to their development of original dance performances. As the girls demonstrate their coding skills, they move on to more advanced programming levels and projects, including advanced coding languages like Python, C++, Java, and HTML, to build websites. Only 25% of those involved in coding are women, and danceLogic is making a big push to ensure a growing minority female footprint in this industry.
The danceLogic program is led by dance teachers Cameron Bridges and Natasha Truitt, who team up with coding teachers Devon Gooden and Franklyn Athias. Every Saturday, an hour and a half is devoted to dancing, followed by an hour of code. Both coding and dance function as forms of creation that use repetition and collaboration to produce works. Girls start associating repetitive actions in dance with steps that you have to code. With various incentives throughout the year, such as field trips and the chance to receive a free iPad, students must be engaged and willing to work hard. Our goal is to give girls a sense of agency and autonomy in STEAM, to combine the necessity of arts and sciences.
West Park is experiencing growing interest in danceLogic, especially after its appearance on CBS This Morning and its coverage in numerous print articles. To advance and expand danceLogic to meet demand, increased funding through individual donors, grants and sponsorships is needed. The organization maintains a policy of never turning away a child for financial reasons, making accessibility a priority.
