About this program

Inventive warm up and physical activities challenge both body and mind using stationary and locomotor movement. The participants will dig into the creative process of making a dance through a connection with literacy. By using a book as the departure point, the group uses similar themes to investigate dance qualities, individual vocabulary and basic choreography. Inspired by the books Outside by Deborah Underwood (Grades 1 – 3), is by Peter H. Reynolds (Grades 4 – 6) and Dreams of Freedom by Michael Morpurgo (Grades 7 -8/sec I – II), participants will learn to express themselves through dance with confidence and excitement.
Each workshop creates a welcoming and inventive environment for creative dance. The workshop begins with a short performance by professional dancers.With a focus on dance creation, these interactive workshops promote positive self-esteem and compassion with some time for individual reflection.
