Teachers and teaching artists may use this Art Collector Set as part of their classes. Students may also use it as an independent study.

The Elements of Dance Sets have been created through a partnership of Walker Art Center and Perpich Center for Arts Education using frameworks and tools developed by Diane Aldis for Perpich professional development and outreach programs.
