"Dancing Verbs"

This program is presented as part of the Artists-in-Schools program, which is funded and jointly sponsored by the Hillsborough County School Board and the Arts Council of Hillsborough County.

Welcome to a performance that will create dances right in front of your eyes, with your help. Or at least first drafts of them! Our audience will get an insider’s view on the making of dances by choosing verbs, adverbs and similes from separate hats and then watching as the dancers choreograph short dances to the chosen words. The dances link the three elements together through a pre-structured outline, resulting in funny and sometimes outrageous combinations. Illustrating verbs, adverbs and similes with movement creates a unique visual, expressive, and memorable experience.
