MAKING IT: IN MV SCHOOLS
A dance-making and movement problem-solving initiative in the schools and across island generations and cultures!
Godfrey Muwulya, dance educator, was on island for four amazing and creative weeks as a part of The Yard's "MAKING IT: Kids Make Dance" dance-making and movement problem-solving initiative in the schools and across island generations and cultures! He worked extensively with The Charter School's 5th and 6th grade classroom, syncing his teaching with a social studies unit on Africa. The children learned three traditional African dances from Uganda and Rwanda, had discussions about Ugandan culture, constructed traditional raffia skirts, and performed for the entire school and their parents! While on island, Godfrey also taught one day workshops for The Edgartown School and Bridge Program, Chilmark School, Home Schools, and Oak Bluffs School.
