International Folk Dance
Social dances from folk traditions around the world provide a unique vehicle for extending learning in social studies.
How did dancing together help Appalachian communities survive through the winter? What are the origins of the Hawaiian hula? What are horses doing in a traditional dance from Russia?
These and other essential questions spark inquiry as students delve into history, geography, and culture while learning traditional dances. Cooperative learning is a natural outgrowth of dancing together, and these skills are boosted along with large motor skills, rhythm and balance.
Fun, easy to learn, aerobic dances give students an active cultural arts experience.
