Island Moving Co. dancers have been working with Pell School’s second and third graders this month. The third graders created dances around the themes of Perseverance, Compassion, Gratitude and Respect, while the second graders helped us pilot our new math-based curriculum. The second grade teachers are getting movement workshops too, and they have been great! With help from the Benefactors of the Arts Secret Garden Tour, the RI State Council on the Arts and the Frances R. Dewing Foundation.
