Connecting Minds In Motion to your classroom
All fourth or fifth graders at participating schools attend weekly dance classes with professional teaching artists and musicians. A portion of the year is spent teaching students basic dance curriculum, followed by choreography for the culminating performance. Students work toward the performance as a long-term goal, an experience that builds confidence, perseverance, and creativity.
Each year, Minds In Motion alternates between either a content or story based theme. Through partnership with the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts during the 2018-2019 school year, students are learning about the power of oral tradition and folktales from the continent of Africa. This rich subject offers many opportunities for teachers to make connections to their classroom.
