Dancerís Workshop
Annual workshop now in its 11th year
by Pinedale Fine Arts Council
November 24, 2008

For the 11th year, Dancerís Workshop of Jackson Hole (DW) worked with Pinedale Elementary Physical Education students as part of a two-week residency presented and made possible by the Pinedale Fine Arts Council. The residency concluded on Friday, Nov. 21.

Kate Kosharek and Meredith Koloski, instructors from DW, spent the first week practicing basic movements of dance while focusing on memory, vocabulary and symmetry. In the second week, students performed choreographed movements and learned more technical dance movements which incorporated elements of math, poetry and symmetry. Students will give a dance performance, using techniques learned, this Spring.

As part of PFACís ongoing DW residencies, students will be exposed to both modern and traditional dance from their days in the elementary school all the way through their freshman and sophomore years of high school. By the time a student graduates from Pinedale High School, he/she will have learned traditional dance movements as well as hip-hop, salsa, Latin, rumba and many other dances thanks to these Dancerís Workshop/Pinedale Fine Arts Council residencies.
