Heart of the Matter
Finding healthy ways to connect with our own bodies.
Heart of the Matter is a narrated dance performance for elementary school children, grades 2-5, developed to bring awareness to Anti-bullying and to encourage self-awareness and positive body image. The children’s book, Full Mouse/Empty Mouse, by Dr. Dina Zeckhausen, has served as an inspiration for the new dance theatre work that enables students to:
identify their feelings
investigate solutions when being bullied
develop an understanding of feelings and stress on the body
gain basic insights into the connection between feelings and bullying
Performed by the Dance Artists of Core Dance, Heart of the Matter raises awareness and creates an accessible approach to a complex topic.
