Dance Applied to Real Life
In this episode of DanceCast, Silva interviews Margot Greenlee, a choreographer, theater director and artist educator based in Washington DC. Here, Margot discusses her involvement with Jacob’s Pillow’s Curriculum in Motion® and her own project, BodyWise Dance, which provide dance classes and workshops for individuals and groups in healthcare, education and corporate settings that offer movement as a way of learning and processing information. She details one program of BodyWise wherein dance and theater practitioners work with a group of people with intellectual disabilities to create and perform an original show with the goal of using performance as an opportunity for community integration.
