In addition to the River North Dance Target grant, our 4th grade Skinner North students were able to see the dance company in action with the guidance of our gifted art teacher, Mrs. Kayla Bradley.
It is best to sum our students’ experiences in her words:
“Our artists learned about each era's dances, clothing and music through in my class before we went as we created gesture drawings from the dance clips from YouTube.
They loved seeing the dances and costumes they were familiar with on stage. It was a great performance that gave us all a snip it of culture through dance, music and costumes from the 1920's-the 1990's.(..) This was one of the best field trips ever!”
If you have contacts or ideas for future Music/Art field trips, please shoot us an email at SNartscommittee@gmail.com
Thank you Mrs. Bradley for your vision and initiative!
