Heart of the Matter
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.
