Core Creativity: Program Review through Dance

Curriculum: Dance, Engligh/Languge Arts, Social and Cultural Connections, Social Studies, STEM

Combine arts and humanities with core content in an exciting dance workshop that will inspire students to take an active role in their own learning while engaging in aligned, standards-based activities. This program is arts integration at its best! Workshops offer students the opportunity to experience culture and diversity in a fun, kinesthetic, and engaging way! Workshops will promote:

  • Critical thinking skills
  • Physical fitness
  • Self-confidence
  • Effective communication
  • Collaborative activities
  • Creative expression
  • Participation in engaging activities

Core Creativity familiarizes students with dance terminology and key dance elements while igniting their imagination, learning and creating original choreography, and interacting through activities involving critical thinking and movement. This workshop is designed to reinforce learning and reflect upon student knowledge.

Examples: Students could physically experience what it might feel like to become the water cycle and see what evaporation, condensation, precipitation, transpiration, infiltration, and collection might look like if it were a dance. Once students feel these movements in their own bodies, they may better understand how the water cycle works and remember this information for years to come.

Students may use elements of dance, movement, and music in connection with developing mood in their writing assignments.

Note: Core Creativity requires a meeting with the teacher prior to the student workshop.
