Moving Weather (4th-5th grade)
Kansas is known for its weather! Working with the principles of choreography, students will use movement skills to learn and communicate information about the structure and attributes of the atmosphere defining our climate.
Students will create and perform "dances" that incorporate the elements of dance with the science of weather in this kinesthetic residency. The workshops can be scheduled for 45, 50 or 60 minutes in length. This residency will require ample space for group movement. A culminating event is optional, but highly recommended.
An introductory visit from the weather professionals at Wichita's National Weather Service/NOAA can be scheduled in conjunction with this residency!
Appropriate for ages: Grade 4, Grade 5
With a background and training in dance, theater and visual art, Pamela Lamont is a genuine Renaissance woman. A talented fiber artist and painter, Lamont’s award-winning work has been exhibited regionally, as well as in Wichita galleries.
She also performs in the duo “Once Upon a Puppet,” and is a Kansas Wolf Trap artist.
Pam was absolutely fantastic. She had a great rapport with the students and their classroom teachers.

The students and I really looked forward to having Pam come each day. I feel it is so important to use the arts to reach students besides using paper and pencil activities. It involves their whole body!

My students had a lot of fun with the Geometric Name Design program. It was a good way to review concepts.
