Dance Across Living Sky

“To understand what I am saying, you have to believe that dance is something other than technique. We forget where the movements come from. They are born from life. ” – Pina Bausch

How do we create dances in the classroom? What does it mean to create dance using an “inquiry” process?


Grade 5 students create dance from poetry


Grade 4 students dance with painted feet to poetry.

To examine that question Living Sky is partnering with Dance SK and LIVE Arts to bring three innovative dance programs to classrooms across the province. Arts Educators and dance teachers are collaborating to develop workshops with students for LIVE Arts broadcasts.  Teachers can download the teacher guides and register their classes to watch and participate by going to their website to sign up for FREE.

Join in for LIVE programs:

  • March 6th – broadcast from McKitrick Community School with Grade 4 at 10:50am and Grade 5 at 1:10pm

Students created this big idea for their dance inquiry.


Dancing is a feeling.
