Get to know our students
Why did you choose to participate in Performing Ourselves?
I did it last year with my 1st grade class and I loved the experience. My class is bilingual and it is a great way for us to grow as a community through movement because everyone can participate.
What did you like most about your class participating in performing ourselves?
I saw my kids gain more confidence and become more comfortable and outgoing.
Do you have a moment or story you would like to share about your class or students(s)?
All of my students wanted to dance more during choice when the Performing Ourselves residency was over. They wanted to continue moving!
What are some skills that were addressed through performing ourselves?
Body control, bubble space, moving through small / medium / large kinesphere space as well as moving quickly and slowly. They have much more control over their bodies and a greater understanding of their movement.
