OUR MISSION

At Library Dances we strive to give every child the chance to explore movement and literature in a whole new way. Linking classic literature with the universal language of dance ensures that all students gain a deep and lasting understanding of the themes and lessons in each story. With the help of professional dancers from State Street Ballet, Library Dances truly brings literature to life for Santa Barbara students.
