Program description

Explore words through movement in this fun lesson on positional words. Students enjoy moving their bodies through space while telling a story and dancing. This workshop is a 30-45 minute experience that introduces students and teachers to an exciting Brain Dance Warm-Up followed by an captivating telling of an adventure story where the characters must traverse obstacles in order to find their way. Become the characters, create their movements and help find their destination as we dance over, under, around and through.
