Wisconsin Poet Laureate, Milwaukee’s 2021 Artist of the Year, writer, performance artist, and creative change agent, Dasha Kelly Hamilton visited Skyline Middle School to share an abbreviated version of her program, Makin' Cake. Part history lesson, part social science revelation, the show served up a conversation about equity in America using storytelling, digital media, and audience participation. SKMS 7th grade students dug into into American history, exploring race, culture and class in a refreshing and fun way.
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 James Madison University, over 500 2nd grade students from Harrisonburg City Public Schools attended a music performance by the CDP Theater Producers from Sydney Australia entitled Meeting Mozart. Wolfgang and his wife Constanze came alive on stage alongside a string quartet of students from the JMU School of Music to perform a variety of pieces by Mozart, while also entertaining through story and acting. Students engaged in movement, conducting, and laughter throughout the performance.
