About This Program
Standing on the Shoulders of our Ancestors!
The Nu World Art Ensemble shares the stories and rich cultural contributions of Africans and African Americans through song, dance, and theatre in Standing on the Shoulders of our Ancestors! Conveying the terrible struggles and powerful triumphs throughout history, and with the goal of inspiring ethnic pride, Nu World educates and entertains while giving students the opportunity for a hands-on, interactive experience. Students gain positive cultural awareness from this unforgettable arts performance.
"Even in very challenging situations, WombWork’s team collaborates and uses several positive behavior and character development strategies to foster a creative atmosphere with clear expectations. These attributes enable them to keep students engaged throughout the entire school day in a much needed artistic environment. WombWork consistently utilizes acting to emphasize the importance of literacy and mathematics and embeds those two primary curricular areas throughout their lessons. In giving students a well-rounded theater arts experience, WombWork often utilizes multi-media technology throughout their lessons which has noticeably enabled them to give students a high level of interest in theater arts. WombWork Productions is certainly enriching the lives of children and local communities in Baltimore City through all of the compassionate work that they provide through the perpetual usage of social identity & awareness and action through actual performance and teaching."
