Home Sweet Home!
No Matter What!
We’re Making Sure That Our School Programs Are Accessible To EVERY School
Teachers are superheroes. Parents are superheroes. When working together, they are able to offer children the full education they deserve! The recent focus on Mental Health and Physical Literacy in schools is not by accident. Students have never been more in need of our support and when it comes to these issues, we consider ourselves your partners.
We work hand-in-hand with Schools and Parents, adding our unique and essential approach to supporting the Physical and Mental Health of children everywhere. At SoundKreations, Physical Literacy and Mental Health are what we call THE BASICS of Basic Education and are the main focus of our in-school dance and poetry programs.
Below, we have outlined some of the ways that SoundKreations is helping to make sure that every school continues to receive our essential programming… no matter what.
SoundKreations is the most reasonably priced program in the province with our 5 Full-day dance program costing only $5 per student. That’s without any discount or promotion! There is very little you can get for $5 these days and an SK Dance Residency is one of them!
Accessibility to Funding Pools
SoundKreations programs are not only Cross-Curricular and focus on Physical Literacy, Mental Health, and Anti-Bullying but SK Programs can be offered in multiple languages (for bilingual schools), and even integrate Faith-based music (for the Catholic and Christian Schools). By supporting your school’s specific mandate, we offer you the opportunity to access funding from various pools rather than relying solely on the Phys. Ed funding.
Not every program needs to run for a full week and end with a school wide performance! We offer hugely engaging and extremely affordable 3-day program options that allow for large class sizes and include in-class performances! For a typical school, a 3-day program only costs $3 per student!
PROJECT ACCESS is an initiative led by the our SoundKreations dance team to make the SK residency programs accessible to ALL schools, regardless of financial restrictions, by heavily subsidizing program costs for qualifying schools.
Large Classes? No Problem
Our prices are not based on the number of students participating which means that doubling up classes for your SoundKreations Program can greatly reduce the cost of your program! Our instructors are uniquely trained to work with large groups!
Hundreds of schools have accessed funding for our programs through the various Arts and Education grants available. We have years of experience in supporting schools in writing grant applications and with our online library of application resources, applying for funding can be a much easier task than you think!
The program was simply outstanding! Ajay created some amazing energy in our school for dance! His dynamic personality had even our most distracted kiddos engaged! I can’t rave enough about Ajay and SoundKreations!
