In this hands-on moving and learning experience, participants will physically explore the BEST elements of dance (Body, Energy, Space and Time) and learn how to use them to encourage students to gain a deeper understanding of language and literature through movement. Houston Ballet staff will model classroom exercises and creative movement activities which incorporate vocabulary, characters and/or themes to create integrated arts lessons using dance and movement. Dance teachers will learn how to collaborate with ELA teachers to support language and concept acquisition in their schools. There will be activities especially geared toward English Language Learners.
