Manitoba Arts Council’s – Artists in the Schools (AIS) Residencies

This program connects reputable artists with schools and includes generous subsidy for program costs. As a long-time AIS educator, Rebecca’s celebrated and adaptable programming comes highly recommended:

CREATIVE CONTEMPORARY MOVERS offers unique and alternative ways of learning through dance, allowing students the opportunity to build self-esteem as life-long learners and movers. Students learn the value of movement and develop many important life skills through a planned program. Topics include introduction to movement, understanding of body mechanics, self-care, fitness, theatre terminology, local dance history, and contemporary dance technique, including comparisons to different dance styles.

Students develop an understanding of space, rhythm, weight, balance, flow, and the limitless combinations they provide. Active participation in set exercises, improvisations, and group-created choreography allows students to personally discover dance and explore self-expression. Students and staff help decide which elements are important to a task, exercise, or performance, and cooperatively develop instructor, peer, and self-evaluations. Students showcase their new skills through small class presentations or a large final performance. Imaginations flourish, self-esteem grows, and fun ensues!
