This is the culminating event for the residency with Integrated Arts Academy K-2 grade students with Community Engagement Lab Teaching Artists Ashley Hensel-Browning and Hanna Satterlee. Throughout the year we have been answering the question "How does communication shape us?" through dialogue, movement and creative expression.
The project–– a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Integrated Arts Academy ––has its genesis in the Vermont Creative Schools Initiative's Teacher Institute, a program of the Community Engagement Lab. Teachers from IAA, Judy Klima, Jennifer Peake Margaret Plante, Heather McGrath, George Leal, and Melissa Rose, were paired with teaching artists––dancers Ashley Hensel-Browning and Hanna Satterlee––to explore the question of how dance deepens our understanding of ourselves and events around us.
"In our dance work have been using movement as a medium for both expressing our ideas as well as listening to others, thinking about how the ideas of others shapes the choreography and choices we are making, and how we combine multiple ideas to make compelling work that communicates a message," Hensel-Browning says. "We've also spend quite a bit of time exploring how there are multiple ways to interpret what we see and have used many modalities (visual, literary, dance) to play with this idea."
Come join us for the finale of our work together!
