1. To achieve a 100% comprehension rate of the curriculum goals for the residency.

  • APPRECIATE the process of dance as art

BIO

Led by Emmy Award-winning choreographers Jamey Hampton and Ashley Roland, BodyVox is known for its visual virtuosity, distinctive wit and unique ability to combine dance, theater and film into breathtaking productions rich in imagery, athleticism and humor.

 

BodyVox’s E-Team enthusiastically shares their talent for the purpose of engaging, energizing, encouraging and empowering, students in kindergarten, elementary and high school.

 

We encourage students to discover the joy of learning by integrating core academic subjects into dance; helping them create deep connections and understanding of these subjects in their world. Students experience the power of communicating through movement as creators and investigators, exploring their personal connection with the world to achieve their goals through imaginative demonstrations on stage and in classrooms.
