As part of a Professional Dance Residency at the CFA - and supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts - Claire Jacob-Zysman and Dancers visited Cloverbank Elementary in Hamburg to teach students about the exploration of movement. Claire Jacob-Zysman (BFA, University at Buffalo ’06) and dancer Jennifer Yackel where able to create a safe and inviting environment for students to participate. The fourth graders were given the opportunity to improvise and created their own movement phrases. While in residency, Claire and dancers had a performance which included the students and the work they had created. Students were able to receive aesthetic education and gain valuable knowledge of this art form.
