Residencies can take place during or after school. If the educational needs of your classroom differ from the residencies offered below we are able to adapt to different educational or curriculum areas in most cases.
Our “Making Science Dance” Program - Grades 2-5
In this residency students will generate choreography that explores the forces, pathways, and relationships present in the solar system. Through dance improvisation and working with a partner, concepts of rotation, axis, gravity, and orbit are explored.
Making Plants Dance - Grades K-2
Students will explore concepts of seed germination, plant development, and pollination as they develop choreography with a partner that explores the forces, directions and relationships present in the life cycle of plants.
Making Physics Dance - Grades 6-8
In Making Physics Dance, students will explore dance as both an art and a science while developing their own choreography. Students will analyze and measure motion in terms of reference point, speed and velocity - drawing connections with basic principles of Physical Science. Dance improvisation and group work allows students to use their own bodies as a tool for discovering and understanding the science of motion. At the residency’s conclusion each partner group will have the opportunity to perform their original choreography for their classmates. Join BodyVox in experiencing the joy of creativity and movement.
