Teaching artist from Nashville Ballet visits lower school

The Nashville Ballet's community engagement program strives to promote dance as an essential and inspiring element of our community with wide-reaching and innovative educational dance programming for schools, businesses, and community groups throughout Middle Tennessee.
This week, a teaching artist from the ballet visited kindergarten classes for an interactive storytime workshop. Students read "Little Cloud" by Eric Carle and talked about how clouds move and take shape. Then, students participated in an active exploration of movement, introducing them to the joy and boundless possibilities of dance. The workshop coincided with the book's themes, and students created different shapes and carved out space with their bodies. 

Hosted in the lower school dance studio, the workshop was a fun and unique way to engage students physically as well as cognitively.
