Our names are Clara Gutauskas and Dana Sauve and we are York University students studying Dance and Education at the Primary/Junior level. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the students here at Westminster Public school! During the month of February we will be teaching a dance program that consists of in-school dance lessons, with a focus on creative movement. This is part of the school's Art Package and supplements the learning already being done in their classrooms. We are working with your child's regular classroom teachers to support the Dance Curriculum will be us in the learning. These lessons will occur on February 9, 16-19, followed by a final performance. This performance will be about an hour in length, showcasing the work students produce in class, on February 22nd at 1:30 p.m. in the gymnasium. The performance will consist of both live dancing and video compilations of students work in class. We hope that you can attend!
Please have students dress in comfortable clothing that students can move in as we will be dancing in class on February 9, 16-19 and 22. This can be anything with stretch or flexibility in the fabric, preferably not jeans, skirts, or dresses. We also ask that students come prepared to move in a safe space with others. This means for any persons with long hair, that it is tied back and off the face, and that any jewelry is removed.
Miss. Gutauskas & Miss. Sauve
