Wesleyan Scholar-in-Residence Allison Orr conducted a dance workshop for the children in the AfterSchool program at the Green Street Teaching and Learning Center on March 7.
In addition to viewing video clips of Orr’s choreographed works where they observed linemen, sanitation workers, and trucks dancing, the children experienced a creative movement workshop with Orr, where they gained a new understanding of the definitions of what constitutes a dance and who can be a dancer.
Yadel and William participate in the workshop.
Undergraduates Maria Ma ’17, Laurel Comins-Sporbert ’18 and Steven Fields ’19. assisted with the activity.
