Performing Musician & Teaching Artist
Grow Up Great – Playhouse Square
Music & Movement from other Lands
One of the most engaging activities for the young child is moving rhythmically. One of the most essential expressions is to sing, preferable while in movement. Performing folk dances, games, and songs from other cultures and times is like being an actor. The dancer/singer has to take on certain physical characteristics – gesture, posture, attitude, tone of voice, facial expression, and “pretend” that he or she is another person in another world. In this session we will learn songs, games, and dances from all over the world and understand how to teach them efficiently and appropriately to the young child.
