Acting, Directing, & Film
Theatre of the Oppressed, Dance-umentaries, radio plays, Living Newspapers, environmental dance
AND . . . Science!!!!!!!!
Um, Did You Say Science?
Yes. Yes, I did. And soon, you will too!!!
Arts & Science have so much in common. Body systems, health, movement, problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration, the environment, issues of bias and social justice - these only some of the many topics and skills common to BOTH Science and Performing Arts. Ms. Mickman's class "Healing, Justice & Ethics In Science" pairs perfectly with the Holistic Dance & Theatre curriculum. This is going to be so fun!!!!!!
Ahhhhh, Ms. DeNoma, does this mean we won't be dancing??? Nonsense. Of course we will dance - a lot. In fact, drink some water. You'll probably need it!
Last Season In Dance . . .
“Dance is my medicine ... Dance is the fist with which I fight the sickening ignorance of prejudice. Instead of growing twisted like a gnarled tree inside myself, I am able to dance out my anger and frustration.” - Dr. Pearl Primus
We ended last year with an examination of the role dancers, choreographers, and other artists have played in generating social change. This work must continue.
As artists, we have an obligation. This obligation is not only to show the world as it is and was, but also how it should be. How will you use your voice? How will you fight for change?
