The Kimmel Corner
To get you in the mood while you read the updates... Push Play!!!
We are starting a brand new semester! Which means that in the dance universe we are starting over with new songs, new choreography, and a new show!!! The new show will be entitled "I Will Survive" and will feature songs and dances that represent all stages of love and relationships.
It also means that the girls will have a new unit, learning more about dance history and anatomy as we discuss Colonial America/The 1800s/Pioneers of Modern Dance and the Muscles Below the Waist.
Known as the skirt dancer, did a lot for lighting in dance history.
Founded by Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn
Dance style performed by Denishawn based on Greek art and pottery.
