Event description

Description

Dance is more than just the exploring of different ways to make a shape or learning a series of steps to music; it is a way of moving that uses the body as an instrument of expression and communication. Through dance, students learn teamwork, focus, and improvisational skills. Dancing allows one to express oneself, but also to find a sense of unity. Dancing provides both physical and mental refreshment, and relaxation through movement, laughter and fun.

Marian Rose has published five books & CDs as tools for teachers who wish to incorporate traditional dance into their curriculum. The most recent of these is a bilingual resource of songs, games and dances for learners of French.

Using these resources, Marian will lead us through a varied repertoire of dances, songs and games from around the world. The focus will be on school-aged children, with adaptations for younger students.
