OVERVIEW

Spend three weeks falling in love with code and dance – and the magic that happens when you bring the two together. Over the course of the program, you will be introduced to software and electrical engineering principles, as well as choreography principles, in order to create a dance routine that integrates the two. You will collaborate with inspiring instructors and fellow participants to explore the incredible world of code and dance with hands-on learning. You will leave Girls Rise Up knowing how to write code, construct circuits, create movement, think creatively, and collaborate with peers.
