The very creative Rainbow Dance Company will be giving a dance presentation and hold a Q&A information session for all ages (open to the public) at 1:00 on Friday, Jan. 11. We will be bringing a group from DCS.
In this interactive performance, students get to see three dances featuring electronic costumes, props and puppets. The light wire technology not only enchants students with professional dance, it gets them excited about the “technology” component of STEM learning. The dance artists reveal how they use the STEM engineering design process to create innovative new technologies in dance art, such as wearable electronic costumes and electronic puppets.
Students participate in demonstrations of how engineering design and coding are used to create dances, and selected students are invited up to create their own “ilumidance” with a five-foot-tall light wire puppet.
