Foothills Elementary just completed a six week residency with District Dance Specialist, Melanie Fillmore. Melanie is part of the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program and is a member of the curriculum coaching staff. During her visit Melanie modeled for teachers the use of dance and movement as a teaching tool for core subjects in math, science, social studies, and literature. Melanie, classroom teachers, and students used dance to learn about everything from animal adaptations to characteristics of waves. Check out some pictures and see what we’ve been up to!
