I work in a severely under resourced middle school in Brooklyn, NY. More than 80% of the students qualify for free lunch. While I teach literacy primarily, I also teach theater and art. Unfortunately, due to budget cuts, our school no longer has a full time art teacher. The electives that my students do get are limited. I truly believe that the arts round out a meaningful education and in order to be competitive in school and in life, students need a variety of experiences from which to draw. Thus, this year I created a "Kaleidoscope of the Arts" class in which we study a spectrum of visual and performing arts. While I can teach visual art and theater, I have applied to have a visiting artist from the Brooklyn Academy of Music teach dance. This artist will use African Dance as a means of teaching both dance and culture. Students will not only investigate dance as a performing art, they will study this genre of dance for its historical and cultural significance. In addition, this class will provide physical activity in a school that does not have sports teams. I am asking that a generous donor provide the financial means necessary for my students to engage in this truly meaningful experience. Thank you.
