For my students especially, attending a dance performance is often not within their means. This activity allows them to understand the global aspect of dance while learning important theater manners such as dress, attitude, when to applaud, and just general demeanor in the theater. This kind of activity also teaches my kids an appreciation to the higher arts that they don’t necessarily gain from watching videos. Being able to see a body moving through space and utilizing the elements of dance makes my students question what they are actually capable of and pushes them to demand more of themselves.
