INTEGRATING DANCE: For Schools

Maura Garcia Dance designs and facilitates engaging workshops that activate the mind & body, while still fitting neatly within curriculum standards.  All workshops are designed to engage the key skills of connecting, creating, speaking and listening.  The following are offered as classes for students or as arts integration professional development workshops for educators:

ALL PROGRAMS AVAILABLE IN ENGLISH OR SPANISH
         
Cycling Seasons (grades preK - 4)
A fun exploration of the cyclical patterns of the seasons through dance.  Students learn about the concepts of repetitive systems through guided group motion and explore seasonal differences via self-created choreography.

Algebraic Rhythms (grades 5-10)

An experiential class that explores algebraic concepts through movement.  With a focus on common algebraic formulas, students are able to develop a deeper understanding of processes in a low-pressure, fun environment.  

Dancing Their Stories (all ages)
    
An experiential, movement-based class using movement to respond to historical texts or stories.  Chronological order, characters and actions are all recreated through dance.  Minds and bodies are activated same time, allowing students to develop a new relationship with the narrative.
