This integrative, creative and body-focused class allows kids the opportunity to explore music and instruments from all over the globe. Heidi Kirchofer acts as facilitator, storyteller and musician as kids discover new pathways of movement and expression. Through movement games, yoga and exploration of world dance, students strengthen connections to their bodies/selves and the world around them. World music will be introduced. Music making is focused around Himalayan singing bowls and African drums.
I call on Heidi and Joel to accomplish a tremendous task: to dissolve the barriers that exist between teens from Hartford and and teens from rural Connecticut...it's magical to see these teens that arrived on two separate buses from entirely different environments come together over a drumming session or to practice juggling...Heidi and Joel are amazing people and excellent role models for teens to look up to.
