Important Reasons For Including
Folk Dancing In Your Curriculum
Folk dances help young students understand and appreciate the beauty and diversity of children from various world cultures. The joy of dancing honors the creativity of human beings and uniqueness of each culture. Participants will have a wonderful time sharing dances together and strengthening their commitments to share this art form with their students. Experiences with folk dancing has been shown to improve rhythm in children and provide them with unique opportunities to recall sequences, phrases and patterns in the steps, much as they would with language arts and math experiences.

"Now, more than ever, our children need joyful experiences that help them discover and appreciate treasures of their own cultures and cultures from around the world. No one provides such enriching activities as beautifully as Lorraine Arcus as she invites friends of all ages into her circle of dance. The arts are the language of the human spirit and through dances and music from places near and far, familiar and new, we learn, with Lorraine, the delight of diversity within the universality of our oldest ways of celebrating- through music and dance."
