Photo of the Week – December 5, 2011
Students from PS 20‘s 3rd grade Urban Arts Dance integration shared the work they’ve done in dance and social studies at Dixon Place Theater. The students had the opportunity to visit the American Ballet Workshop with Frank Sinatra High School the week before, this time they were onstage in a professional theater!
Here’s what teaching artist Michelle Seabreeze had to say:
“It was an amazing experience, for myself, as well as the students. The students had a wonderfully professional experience performing in the space, as a result of the use of the entire space as well as a special treat watching themselves projected on the large screen. The teachers and parents were extremely impressed!”
Students wrote about their experience after the event. One student shared this statement:
“I would like to say that Urban Arts is the best thing that’s ever happened to me, because now music will be my inspiration when I grow up.”
