Movin': Rehearsing Life Skills through Dance Less

Appreciation of differences, problem solving skills, and teamwork are developed through movement exploration activities. Students discover unique ways of moving & relating to one another as they choreograph and improvise. Understanding of dance will be enhanced through studies in elements of dance (time,space, force), spacial awareness, rhythms, shapes, leading /copying. This is a playful exploration tapping into students' imaginations to connect their minds and bodies. Developed through the John F. Kennedy Center’s Seminar on arts-integrated residencies.
