“With this grant, Attack Theatre and Pittsburgh Arlington educators (2nd and 3rd grade) will develop a student residency that utilizes kinesthetic learning strategies and STEAM concepts to explore 21st century skills for critical thinking, communication and collaboration, all through inquiry-based learning methods. This project will also provide an experiential learning environment that fosters artistic expression, the development of social and emotional intelligence, student self-awareness and self-regulation through kinesthetic approaches. This will give the students a new sense of confidence, along with a new outlook on dance, that I hope will stay with them long after the residency is complete.”
