Arts Specialist Forum in Boston

Tonight was the first Arts Specialist Forum for Boston Public Schools Arts. Lois Hetland, the keynote speaker, invited me to facilitate a discussion with the Drama and Dance Teachers about the Studio Habits of Mind. It felt like we were just getting started when the event concluded, but this is only the first Arts Specialist Forum, so the Art, Dance, Music, and Drama teachers were left hungry for more.

Hip Hop Dance Theatre at Boston University

We made all the movements of the day in fast forward, then crashed to floor to stretch. Breakdancing foundations followed and in culmination we created movement theatre pieces exploring themes like "life on B.U. campus" and "war". 50 young dancers from Boston University's Dance Theatre Group came to my Hip Hop Dance Theatre master class. It was an honor to work with this talented group. If you're in the Boston Area check out their performances this fall.
