Around Queens: Notes in Motion
Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre's acclaimed 24-year-old dance education program, Notes in Motion, will partner with 23 schools in Brooklyn to bring inclusive dance education programs to underserved Pre-K-12 students. The programs are tailored to the specific needs and population of each school, guided by Notes in Motion's singular approach to arts education: the Movement Exchange Method, which combines technical dance instruction with creative skill building and collaborative learning. Notes in Motion fosters self-discovery, risk-taking, and leadership development — vital life skills that have faltered during the pandemic, which dance education nurtures by design. I would love to offer you interviews with Amanda Selwyn and her teaching artists about Notes in Motion's offerings, and its impact on school communities.
