Pell School Creative Movement

Pell School boys 2016 J CarterThe third graders at Pell School in Newport just completed a week of workshops with the Island Moving Co. dancers.  They explored the theme of “Sustainability” with themes like Simplicity, Acceptance, and Generosity.  The classes wore color coordinated outfits for their performance at the school on Friday, January 22nd to a large and appreciative crowd of their fellow students, parents and friends.  The residency was generously supported by the Benefactors of the Arts with help from the North Family Trust, the Little Family Foundation and the RI State Council on the Arts.  The dancers return to Pell in March to have fun with Math Into Movement with all the second graders.  Photo by Jen Carter.
