This creative dance workshop is a window into how you can use dance as a vehicle for learning in the classroom. It will provide dance teachers and educators with the necessary tools to create meaningful integrated lessons for grades k-6. We will explore how to use movement to teach math, science and language arts. Through integrating dance and curriculum we will help students to use their imagination to create and problem solve in the classroom. Click here to RSVP!
