[STUDENT TRAINING]

"You have taught me so much over these past semesters and I cannot thank you enough. I hope to incorporate all of the wonderful things you have taught me into my own practices."
Rachel Wagner, Class of 2005

---

Lessons are based on the concepts of space, time, force and body and may include folk dance, simple or complex choreographic projects or dance explorations that also teach core curriculum: science, language arts, math or social studies.

As a means of studying curriculum, dance is an excellent way to embody the sequences of a scientific process, grasp the meaning of prepositions, understand through muscle memory the nature of symmetry, or feel the emotional upheaval of a runaway slave.

Kate always includes a brain-compatible warm up in her lessons, so that students can benefit from the profound effects of better brain organization for overall learning.

Kate has taught dance in the schools as a Teaching Artist since 1982.
