Integrated Curriculum Residences

Offer students and teachers the opportunity to learn how movement relates to subjects such as science, social studies, language arts, and math. Through improvisation and dance composition exercises, students create dances to explore and reinforce themes they are learning in other subjects. Integrated curriculum lessons are created in collaboration with classroom teachers, follow Content Standards, and can be tailored to the specific needs of each class.

Wigglewords (K-4)
3- 10 day residency integrating English/Language Arts curriculum and content standards. Full of fun and energy, the Wiggle Words program uses movement to teach literacy skills to children. Led by a professional dancer from Verb Ballets, students bend and stretch their bodies to form the letters of the alphabet while improving knowledge in spelling, phonics rules, identification of vowels and consonants, rhyming, and storytelling. Wiggle Words keeps children moving and energized with a variety of word and movement games. This exciting residency really supports those kinetic readers!
