Tapping With Goldilocks
Students are introduced to patterns and rhythms as one dancer narrates the traditional story and the other represents each character with different steps and sounds.
The Dance Show
An interactive lecture/demonstration that is designed to introduce students of all ages to the basic elements of dance. The Dance Show explores shapes, space, patterns and rhythm through short dances, designed and choreographed to focus on each specific element. Dancers, with the help of audience members demonstrate the various elements and perform examples to a wide range of music.
Focusing on dance as a form of communication children observe how emotion can affect movement and how the spoken word can be used as ‘music’, drawing a parallel between poetic language and dramatic movement…adding a clear example of the story-telling nature of dance.
The Music & Dance of Canada
Our neighbors to the North have a rich history of dance and music. Your students will learn more about the lives and culture of the early explorers who canoed through the Great Lakes.
