2007:
“Motion Commotion!”

This year's related topics:
Energy and Nutrition

On behalf of World Arts West and our 2007 cast, welcome to the 13th season of the arts education program of the San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival, People Like Me!

This season we present an adventurous inventor on a global quest for a free, clean, and inexhaustible source of energy. As he explores the dance and music of Brazil, India, the Romani Trail, Africa, and the mountains and cities of the U.S., he discovers a powerful energy source, expressed through cultural dance and music traditions. Through this, he gains new understanding of the diversity and power of cultural traditions, and the community energy shared between people around the world. 

Presented in an engaging and interactive one-hour performance, the theater experience and its supporting curriculum material in our award winning Viewer’s Guide present a multidisciplinary and multicultural approach to meeting State Content Standards for Visual and Performing Arts, Science, Language Arts, and Social Science, while exposing children to the rich diversity of performing artists living in Northern California. This year, the scientific topics of energy and fuel, and nutrition are embedded in the script and highlighted in the Curriculum Guide and the Student Activity Books.
