Lora Schmidt's tale of transformation

Students from Rees Elementary, Mapleton Elementary and Hobble Creek Elementary participated in the dance and the Child International (daCi) Day of Dance "Stories That Move Us" on Saturday November 3, 2012.  The day began with a Native American grass dance by Rees students and a pioneer story acted out by Hobble Creek students narrated by Lora Schmidt.  The students learned a hip hop slam poetry dance, a folk dance, and played at creative drama or musical theatre with storyteller Lora Schmidt, and professors from BYU, U of U and UVU.  They also created a dance to share with the whole group. 
   Sponsors for the Day of Dance were Utah Division of Arts and Museums, National Endowment for the Arts, Artworks for Kids, BYU Arts Partnership, Reams, Crayola Crayon.
