End-of-year Performance by Dance and Dance Education Programs, and AHRC-Nassau

Hofstra University’s Dance and Dance Education Programs and the Association for the Help of Retarded Children (AHRC-Nassau) will host an end-of-year showing, titled Moving Words, on Wednesday, May 8 at noon in Dempster Hall, Room 209, located on Hofstra’s South Campus. The informal performance is free and open to the public and will also include works by dance majors Andre Goddard and Martha Lavery.

Hofstra’s Dance and Dance Education Programs have been working with the AHRC-Nassau for the past five years to help adults with mental disabilities explore their creativity through dance.  All Hofstra participants volunteer their time by choreographing and leading one-hour workshops each week for the AHRC-Nassau participants under the direction of Anita Feldman, director of the Dance Education Program at Hofstra.

The lead instructor is Dance Education student Teresa Schmitt. The dancers have worked this semester on making movement studies inspired by poetry. Hofstra volunteers are gaining teaching experience and are given the opportunity to impact other people’s lives through the arts.  The AHRC-Nassau adults have shown great improvements and much happiness from the Hofstra dance workshops.
