Science Can DANCE!

Gique's Science Can Dance program provides youth with a way to explore science, technology, and engineering through creative movement and dance choreography.

Each workshop is led by local dancers who are also scientists and engineers, which provides a unique mentorship opportunity for students interested in both the arts + STEM. Given our program's innovative approach to STEAM education, Science Can DANCE! has been featured on PBS NOVA's School of the Future Series (see video below).

If you're interested in Gique bringing a Science Can Dance workshop to your school or venue, please contact us! See below for more info on upcoming programs near you.
