I have been choreographing a dance to the anti-bullying song "Side by Side."  The enthusiastic and committed students from Winchester Elementary School are rehearsing the dance which will be performed this Saturday.  Very Exciting!  For more details visit the Brio Theatre website at This anti-bullying presentation is a collaboration among Brio Theatre, One Stage Productions, and Winchester Multicultural Network. I greatly enjoy creating with and working with these talented artists.

Fieldtrip Fun

Dance with Books Students and Chaperones greatly enjoyed the fieldtrip to the Boston Children’s Museum.  The museum is filled with educational and hands-on activities that spark students’ curiosity and keep them engaged.  Students explored the Japanese House which connected to the Dance with Books lessons on Japan, Yumika, and the book I Live in Tokyo.  There were activities for students to get healthy doses of exercise which included the climbing structure, shooting basketball hoops, and following a dancing light display.  Playing with the various water displays was also a big hit!
