As part of the Magnolia School District Arts Integration Program, first-grade students have been communicating folk stories through dance. Lessons are taught by Aman Dance teaching artists from Segerstrom Center for the Arts. During this rich, interactive program, students work together to learn dance and movements in the style of “Western Highlife,” a popular West African style of dance that is a dynamic process of storytelling. This eBook presentation entitled “Dances of West Africa” was developed by Baden-Powell students in Yvonne Morrison’s first-grade class to share their experience.
