Fall Programs in the Community

Local and statewide cultural council grants are available to fund creative movement programming at your school or community center. GFCM has received numerous grants to fund everything from 1-time workshops to week-long full-school resencies. If your institution would like to partner with GFCM to bring creative dance to your community for FREE please be in touch!

 

Looking back… highlights from this spring

Awesome Art in Motion on stage

On June 2nd, the 12 members of Awesome Art in Motion put on an amazing show of original choreography at the Shea Theater! For those of you who missed the show, check out this Dance Film telling the story of Stella Luna the bat (screened at the opening of the show).

Dance at the Gill Elementary School

In May GFCM had the pleasure of leading a series of creative movement classes in both the kindergarten and 3rd grade classrooms at the Gill Elementary school. On June 1st, we shared some of our dances at the final all-school meeting of the year. Thanks to the Gill Cultural Council for their partial funding of this program and to the teachers and admin of the school for their support of this program!

Cross-Generational Community Dance

On May 20th, members of Awesome Art and Motion and their families joined at least 20 elderly residents of the Charlene Manor assisted living home for a community dance class! After warming up our bodies, children, parents and elders shared stories of loved ones, created short dances based on gesture and performed them for each other. We look forward to facilitating more cross-generational dance opportunities in the future!
