Core Creativity: Learning through Dance

Curriculum: Dance, English/Language Arts, Social Emotional Learning, 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. Perfect for the kinesthetic learner, this workshop helps to put ideas in the body and, therefore, cement them in the mind. This program is arts integration at its best and can be aligned and tailored to any grade level and content. Workshops offer students the opportunity to experience grade-appropriate curriculum in a fun, kinesthetic, and engaging way.

 

Core Creativity workshops will promote:

  • Critical thinking skills
  • Physical fitness
  • Self-confidence
  • Collaborative activities
  • Creative expression
  • Deep absorption of content

Core Creativity familiarizes students with key dance elements while igniting their imagination, 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 learn to count by 5s and 10s while learning about tap rhythms, beat, syncopation, and syllables.

NOTE: Core Creativity requires communication with the teacher, prior to the workshop, about how the curriculum will be integrated.
