WHAT IS FRAMING DANCE?

Framing Dance is a special field trip experience into the world of contemporary dance, inclusive of in-school workshops and a 25 page curriculum packet for teachers.   Framing Dance explores dances that tell stories, and dances that do not tell stories.

 

Teachers and principals contact Annalisa Minnitti at the Hobby Center for reservations at <Annalisa@thehobbycenter.org>.

 

School buses and student ticket cost provided at no cost to schools.  Limited space, so book early if possible!
