Local Motion partners with ACPS to bring dance integration programming into the school day.
They currently partner with grades 2, 4, and 5 at Mount Vernon Community School. They work with their social studies curricula teaching lessons that integrate National Core Arts Standards in Dance with Virginia Social Studies SOLs. Teaching SOL content and dance standards together requires students to use oral, aural and kinesthetic modalities of learning all at the same time, creating richer understanding in both subject areas.
