Dance with Dawn
Dawn’s workshops focus on traditional (folk) dance and provide a window into cultures of various ethnic groups. Content is chosen to suit grade and class levels, curriculum needs, scheduling requirements, and a school’s specific interest. Utilizing dance and music from various regions of the world, workshops engage students in content through a myriad of choices. Topics can include cultural background and heritage, storytelling, folkcraft, improvisation, and musical instruments. Any of these, as well as the dances, can be integrated into core curriculum areas such as Social Science, Math, and Language Arts.
