Students love this interactive approach to literature, studying music and demonstrate movement in order to draw inferences, synthesize meaning, and analyze character, mood, and plot. Students learn dance pieces from BTM’s repertoire, including “Pirates of the Chesapeake,” “Medieval Festival,” “Beauty and the Beast,” among others in this dance residency.

Our kids (even the 'too cool' for this kids) were very engaged throughout the performance; and some teachers did a follow-up writing activity. I had prepared the kids before the performance with storyline, characters, etc. etc. It fit very nicely into my music curriculum as well as our literacy curriculum. Beautiful music, beautiful dancing, close proximity to the audience kept the students engaged

Wow, what a great performance and a great audience!! I love that the students had this opportunity. One boy in my class, who has a difficult time focusing and completing work, sat in rapt attention. I turned around to look at him and he had tears in his eyes. I said, "Logan, what's wrong?" nd he replied, "I just really like this." POWERFUL!

Our students were fascinated by ballet, a dance form most of them have never been exposed to. The fact that this assembly incorporated a story familiar to students made the performance that much better.
