Jane Franklin Dance from Arlington, Virginia, joined students and teachers at Stone Spring Elementary in a week long residency from November 15-19, 2021. On November 15, EVERY student experienced the company's performance of Complete Dogness, a show inspired by an adorable family pet with bad habits but with the willingness to learn new tricks. The performance incorporates spoken word, movement, music and kinetic imaging and animation. Dancers then worked with every 3rd grade student from Tuesday- Friday exploring different ways to use movement to express emotions and tell stories using techniques observed in the full school show.
Any Given Child Shenandoah Valley is proud to have partial support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Virginia Commission for the Arts to ensure equitable access of the arts for the students of Harrisonburg City Schools.
