Dance, Music, and Literacy Project

“I learned that dances show a story.” Jordana, PS 38

For: Elementary school students

Timeframe: 11 sessions (including performance/Master Class at the Dance Center)

Our highly-acclaimed Dance, Music, and Literacy program (DML) introduces students to the performing and visual arts through a Mark Morris masterwork – L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato, featuring the music of George Frideric Handel, poetry of John Milton, and paintings of William Blake. Students explore the interplay of these art forms and gain a basic understanding of dance vocabulary through Morris’ choreography. The residency culminates with a visit to the Mark Morris Dance Center to watch the Mark Morris Dance Group and perform excerpts from the work with them, followed by a Q&A session.

All classes are accompanied by a professional drummer.
