The students learned the elements of dance – body, energy, space, time – and applied them to create characters and make inferences to the story: In the Rainfield, Who is the Greatest?

The 6-session partnership culminated in a performance on Irving’s “Pajama Day.” Thanks to Anne Andres for photographing┬áthe dancers in action!
