The Arts Education Partnership reviewed multiple research studies identified within ArtsEdSearch — a national clearinghouse of rigorous arts education research — to better understand the role dance education plays in student success. This resource explores how dance education promotes early development of language and literacy, supports long-term academic growth and builds connections to community.
This report is part of AEP’s “Arts Counts” series describing the researched benefits of arts education. AEP has renamed the series “Arts Counts” in positive recognition of the Black Lives Matter movement.
