Dancing on the Outside: Taking Movement Beyond the Studio

My students need a portable speaker to easily be able to learn, create, and perform in environments outside the dance studio.

My Students

"Dancing is like dreaming with your feet." ~ Constanze There is so much inspiration and heightened experiences that can be had from being able to learn, create, and perform movement in different environments. This portable speaker will give me an easy way to execute this idea.

My students come from all walks of life.

I teach approximately 700 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. My school is an arts magnet school that offers all five arts areas. The large majority of my students have never experienced dance except through our dance program. My primary focus is creative movement.

My Project

Having the use of a portable speaker will afford many opportunities to my students. I will have the option of taking them outside for class and allow them to use nature as a source of inspiration for movement. We also have a small outdoor stage where they could hold mini performances. I will have the option of having class and/or rehearsal on stage in our auditorium. We could perform for regular classrooms, in the cafeteria, and in the lobby for open house. All of these experiences aren't possible without the use of an easily portable sound system that doesn't require an electrical outlet.

Your donations will improve the overall dance program at my school by allowing our students to build and grow their confidence as both students and dancers.

They will have the opportunity to showcase what they are learning and work toward a common goal.
