Green Map Project with Repertory Dance Theatre

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 01/12/2012 - 09:29

    Students at Hobble Creek Elementary are learning about mapping, their community, science and technology through the art of dance from the professional dancers of Repertory Dance Theatre.   

     Hobble Creek has an art project grant from the Utah Division of Arts and Museums, formerly the Utah Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the arts.  The grant allows them to join into the Green Map Project which is an international effort to create perspective changing portraits of communities that act as practical guides for resident, tourists, decision makers and statisticians.  The Green Map System has spread to over 600 cities, towns and villages in 55 countries.  

      Repertory Dance Theatre is involved in the community providing  educational opportunities and striving  to increase an awareness of the art of modern dance.  The dance company has been involved in schools in the Salt Lake and Ogden area with the Green Map Project.  

       At Hobble Creek  fourth and second grade students will be working with RDT to dance science and social study concepts.  Students working with Carol Day have created surveys to
collect information about the gardens, native plants and animals,  and watershed of the area that comprises the school boundaries lying in both Mapleton and Springville.   The information will be used by the dancers and placed on student made maps and onto the online green map.  This is “place-based education which emphasizes creative exploration and the joyful realization of the ties that connect a person with nature and culture in their place.”(David Sobel)

       RDT dancers will come to Hobble Creek Friday Mornings Jan 6-March 9.  The company will perform at an assembly for the whole school on January 31 at 10:00 am and the students will present their dances and maps for a culminating event on March 9 at 10:00 a.m.  For any questions you can reach Carol Day at 801-489-2863.

Hobble Creek Elementary spent Christmas around the world!  At an assembly held on December 20, 2011 the students were able to imagine what it is like in other parts of the world during the Christmas season.  The students sung songs, danced and played instruments and much more.  This experience gave the students an idea of Christmas customs in other countries.  Some of the countries that were talked about were Africa, Mexico, Jerusalem, Israel, England and many others.  The program was put together and directed by Sena Smith (Music Specialist) and Holly Mayne (Movement Specialist).  Every grade participated by dancing or singing songs that Sena and Holly had taught them.

The program was such a hit that even Santa Claus had to see it!  He came to the school in his sleigh that landed on the school roof.  Santa asked the students who has been notty and who has been nice.  He then gave treats to all of the students.  The students had a blast seeing Santa and talking with him.

A big thank you goes out to Sena Smith and Holly Mayne for all of their hard work!
