FULL S.T.E.A.M. AHEAD! is a KINETYX ENSEMBLE: Active Learning Performance. These one-hour performances include audience participation and a repertoire of choreographic works that teach math, science, language arts and world cultures. Curriculum goals from NC Standard Course of Study are addressed in each subject for grades K-2, 3-5 or 6-8. There are four professional dancers and a spokesperson. Your students and teachers will love the exciting choreography and the connections between dance and classroom. Adaptations are made for K-2 and 3-5 so all can enjoy and understand. We recommend two performances, split between the above age groups if possible.
