Event description

Description

This workshop with Dan Fee will focus on movement with a big dose of fun! Whether it's adding improvised movement using large pieces of coloured cloth or ribbons, mimicking silly swan movements with paper plates, showing melodic direction with a flashlight, folk dancing, or bringing a book to life, you will have inexpensive, ready-to-use movement activities for Monday morning!

During this workshop, you will be learning rhythmically expressive movement routines to classical music by famous composers such as Bach, Handel, Brahms, Tchaikovsy, Chopin, Mussorgsky, and more. Using scarves, ribbons, tennis balls, parachutes and paper plates you will learn how to help your students explore music in ways you may never have thought possible. You will also explore how to effectively add recorded classical music, singing, creative movement and instrument play to classic and significant children's literatre. Get ready to use flashlights, bubbles and stacking cups while we uncage the Carnival of the Animals and put your dancing shoes on as we explore folk music from around the world.

This workshop is designed for anyone working musically with children ages preschool - primary. It includes a detailed handout with directions to routines and activities, plus thoughts on how to make the inclusion of musical movement activities as successful as possible with your students.
