Moving to Connect, Moving to Understand


In Moving to Connect, Moving to Understand: Using Dance as a Tool for Belonging, Self-expression and Communication, led by Wolf Trap Master Teaching Artist Maria-Ines Tripodi, educators will discover the art of leveraging picture books to ignite language development and unleash creative movement. By weaving in fundamental dance principles, music, and literature, participants will be introduced to and motivated to craft movement-infused activities.
