Remote Learning Arts Update Spring 2020 | Students Work and Performances

Usually during this month we are not only celebrating Pride but also celebrating the GSB students hard work with various end of year performances and art exhibitions! And we still are – just online! Scroll down and click on the links to see how the students continued to dance their hearts out, perform readings of plays, paint, collage and make all kinds of music during remote learning!

Distant Dances – Grades 3-5

Inspired by the original Exquisite Corps dance film by Mitchell Rose, which brings together 42 different American choreographers through a chain letter in movement form, students in Grades 3-5 filmed themselves dancing in various places and connected to each other through a shape, music and dance. Click on the links below to see the dance videos!

After sketching their own ideas and developing a concept and material list for a miniature sound suit hand puppet, students started building their own interpretation. The focus was to create sound when moving the puppet while paying attention to interesting material choices. Click here or on Io’s sketch to watch/hear some of the Sound Suits in action!
