Class by Ashley Creek – Emerson, Edison, Spectrum

This video uses dance to relate the current situation with the COVID19 pandemic to the historical situation of disease brought to Native American populations by Spanish Explorers, which 5th grade students learn about in Social Studies and History.  Ashley discusses the spread of new viruses through a population and uses dance to express the emotions students may be feeling during this time.

Music:
1st song: “Water Shows” by glue70
2nd song: ” Funk It” by Defunk
3rd song: “Snowden’s Jig” by Carolina Chocolate Drops

Dancers- please complete the ICANDO warm-up video before watching this video about the dance element of energy. I hope you enjoy dancing with me.

This video was made in the San Rafael Swell. I highly recommend that you complete the ICANDO warm-up video with instructors Dana Rossi, Sarah Lovett and Alicia Trump before starting on my video. This video is about the dance element of Time.
