Garth Fagan Dance School Ensemble needs shoes for performance at Seneca Zoo.
They will perform a dance designed for hard surfaces(low imapct) which doesn't leave the ground (no jumps) and, hopefully, carries the visceral excitement of a dance with all barrels firing! The students feet need to be protected while dancing on concrete, asphalt and grass.
Dance is a wonderful way for my students to grow and expand their knowledge of self. There are countless ways in which dance has proven to be an art form that expresses and communicates the beauty in the human spirit. The mere fact that we use the human body as an instrument of artistic expression is in itself a clear demonstration of a natural human tendency to strive for something higher and greater.
When we begin to teach dance at any level, we begin the processes of intellectual, emotional and physical analysis, and the building of confidence, health, strength and general well-being. The study of form, musicality, dynamics and structure, in a focused and disciplined environment is nourishment for the soul. Whether my students become performers or not they will develop their creative and expressive instincts, their sensitivity to the world around them, strong feelings of self-worth, and even leadership skills. There is no question that dance education plays a crucial role by developing, early in life, an appreciation and love for the arts, which in turn will serve as a tool for successfully coping with a challenging world.
The "Ibonga" pendant offered by BILBILRAVAGO (my jewelry business bilbilravago.com bilbilravago.net) which I share as a reward for your contribution was inspired after performing this movement during my tenure as a dancer in Garth Fagan Dance 1989-2008. “Ibonga” loosely translates to Movement “ of the IBO tribe”
