CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS: History (Africa), Dance, Music

Students become immersed in the culture of Senegal in this virtual dance workshop. Led by experts in African dance, the class focuses on traditional Senegalese movement styles and indigenous songs, with live drumming accompaniment, to get students moving and singing. Participants also see a video of a dance piece performed by a professional company from Senegal, and learn to perform a version of that same dance.

Each workshop includes a high-definition recorded selection of a BAM mainstage production, an online study guide resource that includes preparatory information and activities for teachers and students, and an engaging virtual workshop facilitated live by a BAM Teaching Artist streamed directly to your classroom.

Leadership support for virtual programming provided by the Altman Foundation.
