Congratulations! Dance with Books Students performed with energy, creativity, and confidence at the Spring Dance Show.
Thank you to Parents for getting hats ready, making sure your children
attended classes and extra rehearsals, and contributing yummy pastries
to the Reception.
During February , Dance with BooksStudents will re-learn the dance "Carnival", a dance choreographed by Ms. Shakur, Dance Educator. "Carnival" is a tribute to Caribbean culture and Ms. Shakur's Montserrat heritage.Also,Ms. Shakur will teach Students the dance "Gumboots", from South Africa.
Tempos in music and dance are slow, medium, and fast. Students explored doing movements to various tempos. Then, we did the Chicken Dance which starts with a medium tempo, then progresses to fast, and super fast. The Chicken Dance also teaches students about movement patterns. You can look up the Chicken Dance on YouTube. It`s a fun dance to do with your child - maybe even your Thanksgiving guests.
