Inlet Dance Theatre is an artist-in-residence at The Music Settlement, providing dance instruction for students ages 3 and up.

For students of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels, Inlet Dance Theatre provides the most transformational education experiences among local dance companies because student-centered mentoring is the foundation of our teaching methods.

Inlet's education programs are a core component of its mission. Their varied education programs employ the four creative practices of imagination, investigation, construction, and reflection and nurture the effective work habits of curiosity, creativity and innovation, critical thinking and problem-solving, communication, empathy, and collaboration—each of which transfers to all aspects of learning and life in the 21st Century.

Care is taken to ensure a warm and empathic learning environment as Inlet engages their students in the various skills needed in their art-making process. The evidence of how Inlet is “using dance to further people” is demonstrated not only by the increased knowledge and skills of their students, but also when they translate dance lessons into life lessons.

For information about classes offered for teen/adults, please contact Inlet Dance Theatre directly at

The Music Settlement has been, and continues to be, an anchor for my family.
