Dance Inspirations

Artistic Director of Freespace Dance, Donna Scro, uses this lecture demonstration to explain what has inspired her to make dances. Shapes, patterns and numbers, children’s play, an abstract transformation of a chrysalis, group and family dynamics are the topics she discusses as the company demonstrates how these ideas can become a dance. Basic composition skills are introduced to the lower grades and explored deeper with the older grades. Through audience participation, the students are encouraged to find their own inspirations to make dances and learn basic tools in order to begin to form those inspirations. Freespace Dance; Grades K-12; $900/$1500
