Kennedy School Dance Residency

The Kennedy Elementary School staff would like to invite you to our Kennedy Elementary School Dance Residency Performances - Water Bridges: Connecting Environmental Advocacy, Arts, and Academics.  There will be two evening performances at Kennedy Elementary School, 3901 Randolph Rd, Janesville, WI in their Performing Arts Center at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 23, 2014.

 Kennedy Elementary students will be showcasing their original choreography and the work they have done with our visiting dance artist-in-residence.  Throughout the residency, students will have used dance as a unique vehicle to integrate many academic subject areas and to embrace 21st Century Learning skills such as creativity and critical-thinking.

 During the residency performances, we also will be featuring components of an International Bridges Project, which focuses on integrating math, science and engineering.  

Bridges will serve as set design and props for the performances. The students worked with our art teacher, Karen Smerlinski, to create and build the bridges from designs that were created in collaboration and with the support of local businesses and a City of Janesville engineer. 

 We look forward to seeing you at the performance. The experience will culminate with two all-school performances at Kennedy Elementary School, 3901 Randolph Rd., on the evening of January 23, 2014 at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Please mark your calendars!
