This is the question that students will consider as they build dances reflecting their experiences of 2020-21; the growth and the loss, the monotony and the discovery, the anxiety and the hope – the tremendous change. By engaging creatively and physically with the many feelings brought forth by the events and circumstances of the past year, kids in grades 4-7 will realize their agency as authors of their own narratives. An informal OUTDOOR performance will be held in June (date TBD).
Story Arc (75 minutes, grades 4-7) offers a creative approach to building dances in this choreography lab that grounds students in composition through technical and improvisational activities. Using literature and their own writing as a platform for exploration, students will explore concepts such as formation, relationship, effort and action as they are introduced to a wide variety of choreographic tools. Students will work collaboratively and independently to structure original dances that are rich, meaningful and inspired.
Class will meet Thursday afternoons from 4-5:15PM, April 15th-June 10th, at Groff Park in South Amherst. Masks are required.
Tuition is $150.
