Third-grade students at the International School at Dundee (ISD)choreographed and performed their own ballet as part of a long-standing cultural partnership with the Connecticut Ballet. This partnership, which is designed to encourage students to appreciate, explore and discover their creativity and to express themselves through non-verbal communication, supports the school’s International Baccalaureate (IB) unit of study “Meaningful Movements” by giving students a comprehensive understanding of dance. This year, the students’ dances were inspired by the theme of “people in our community.”
