LIVE! KINETIKids Workshops
with Follow-Up Performance Video
KINETIKids Workshops are designed to bring movement into the teaching of academic curriculum and aesthetic literacy. Each one-day activity based workshop is paired with a corresponding performance video from Kinetic Works repertoire. It also comes with a pdf handbook that includes dance vocabulary, curriculum based activities and information about the performance. You can print this and keep it in your media center for teachers to use forever.
Schools can choose from the workshop menu below and select the grade level you want to participate. Martha Connerton will conduct a one-hour workshop for up to five classes per day.
Upon booking the workshop you will receive a link to a related performance video. It can be used as a follow up to enhance the workshop experience and to share with your entire school in your own time.
KINETIKids Workshops are in high demand throughout the Carolinas, largely due to the magic touch Ms. Connerton has with students, keeping them engaged at every moment through her unique classroom management skills.
