School’s out, but dance is in!
Next week, while Davis schools enjoy a Thanksgiving break, the Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre will offer a three-day workshop that celebrates the connection between movement and building creative writing skills. The 28-year-old nonprofit dance company has a community outreach/education component to its work.
The workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, Nov. 19-21, and is designed for children ages 6-11. Morning activities will focus on “Moving Words: the Duet of Writing and Dance,” a program of specifically designed movement games and dance activities that enrich creative writing skills. After lunch (children bring their own), activities include dance, stories, theater games and dance on DVDs.
Children may attend one, two or all three days, but the cost is not pro-rated, Trokanski said in a news release.
“Also, while the program begins at 8:30 a.m., children may be dropped off by 8 a.m. so parents may get to work,” Trokanski said.
The cost is $150, and those who register by Wednesday get a $20 discount. The deadline for sign-up is noon Saturday.
The class size is limited to 20 students. The teachers are Cindy Robinson, a credentialed elementary school teacher, and Trokanski, a credentialed K-12 teacher. For more information, call the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop at 530-756-3949.
