Artist: Anna Menendez
Anna collaborates with school staff to tailor this residency to support the objectives of the school. Flamenco song is poetry with a strong rhythmic base and can benefit Spanish, English, and elementary math classes. In this dance residency, Spanish classes learn the can use Flamenco song to support vocabulary development, pronunciation, and social studies objectives. English classes that are exploring creative writing and poetry can focus on meter through the rhythmic handclapping that accompanies Flamenco song. For elementary math students, Flamenco supports the study of patterns and basic math skills through rhythmic hand clapping.

The students really felt proud to be learning something from another culture and looked forward to Ms. Menendez coming everyday. They were excited about how talented she was. She had a very good relationship with the students. I would use this artist again.
