Movement Storytime

Description

Perfect fit for library branches, this workshop brings movement and ballet to an existing story time. Engage your families with younger students in movement games, songs and basic ballet vocabulary. Students will learn about a variety of dance concepts, such as, size, balance, rhythm, levels, shapes, and energy. The class will develop spatial awareness, problem solving, and strengthening the body and brain.

Colorado Ballet Education and Community Engagement's mission is simple: Every. Body. Dance!

Every: to make dance accessible to everyone.
Body: to promote dance and movement as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Dance: to encourage creativity and expression through dance, and foster an appreciation for ballet.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, Colorado Ballet has chosen to prioritize the safety of our students and shift our education to virtual platforms. However, our programs continue to reach a variety of students and families with different backgrounds across Colorado. Some of our learning experiences include:

-Weekly dance classes for students K-8 (30 min)

-Stand alone workshops or recurring residencies for students of all ages (15 - 60 min)

-Student matinees: students attend a professional Colorado Ballet production (20-21 season posted here)

-Live streams of our productions

-Assemblies: From the Page to the Stage!

-Day of Dance: field trip to our facilities (can be adapted to the virtual platform)

-Professional Development

-And more!

Our virtual classes, workshops, and camps will be provided via Zoom. This being said, a laptop, tablet, or smartphone will be required to participate. Links to Zoom classes will be sent prior to each event.

We also love to create new content to bring to your school! Contact us to find out how we can work together to integrate movement into your classroom - in-person or virtual.
