Last week, 4th graders from Harrisonburg City Public Schools and Rockingham County Public Schools experienced the dynamic duo, Collision of Rhythm, in Wilson Hall at James Madison University. Comprised of tap-dancing classical virtuoso, Aaron Williams, and beatbox-juggling keynote speaker, Bronkar Lee, Collision of Rhythm is a high energy duo that fills the stage as a 12-person ensemble would. With audience interaction woven throughout the hour long performance, students experienced everything from drumming, beatboxing, tap dancing, juggling, marimba, piano, and flute through storytelling, humor, and personal stories.
Any Given Child Shenandoah Valley is grateful to our Premiere Performance Partner, the Forbes Center for the Performing Arts at James Madison University, who made this collaboration possible.

In partnership with our Premiere Performance Partner, The Forbes Center for the Performing Arts at JMU, 2nd grade students from Harrisonburg City Public Schools were taken back in time to pre-historic Australia for a breathtaking tour of 19 life-like dinosaurs! Hailing from Australia, Erth Visual and Physical Inc, a team of skilled puppeteers and professional paleontologists, brought the past to life at Wilson Hall for the 400 students in attendance. The company is recognized internationally as a innovator of physical and visual theatre and creator of brave and exciting work for children. Throughout the educational and highly interactive performance, brave student volunteers got on stage to pat, feed, and interact with the dinosaurs and puppeteers.
