Once a year I can't help but share a bit from my teaching with the Rock School's Outreach program. Having the opportunity to reach out to children in Philadelphia's public and charter schools and sharing with them the joy of dance is extremely rewarding. Only working for forty-five minutes to an hour a week throughout the year we are able to cover basic technique, stretching, choreography, stage directions, and creative movement activities. I just got my hands on some rehearsal and performance footage of my 5th grade students last year at Gesu School and couldn't wait to share it. It was my second year working with this group of students. As you'll see they love dancing, even rehearsing on their own when I wasn't around. I hope you enjoy their talent and enthusiasm as much as I do!
