bodyECOlogy: Tatiana Kessedjian, FEB/10

Johannesburg, February 2010
Teacher: Tatiana Kessedjian

Shapes Dance - 01
Shapes Dance - 02

The second phase of the project at Ububele begins this month and it aims to:
  • ally bodyECOlogy activities with Ububele Pre-school's goals;
  • encourage the entrance of a new art-educator and
  • engage parents, teachers and staff in the project more consistently.
According to the school planning, shapes, colors and numbers will be our main theme in February. However, how to associate shapes, colors and numbers to dance, music and movement? Not so difficult. Let’s try and we might have fun!

Square DanceTriangle Waltz

In a beautiful sunny day, we had classes with special teachers... 'Humble' squares and triangles taught us about coordination, directions, rhythm and attention. Simple shapes drawn on the ground were of great importance to our learning as they really helped us to understand where is the front, the back, the right side and the left side.

We interacted with the space, learned the square movement and danced the waltz of the triangle. We played with different shapes in the space and on the body, seeking ways to transform our bodies into geometric shapes.

At the end, we erased out the shape-drawings, but the knowledge they brought to us remains in our memories and hearts.

  1. Belo depoimento da fundadora da escola: sinto que o corpoECOlogia entrelaça raízes na comunidade e, quando as raízes das árvores se juntam é impossível arrancá-las, pois a cidade inteira sairia junto :)

  2. Que lindo esse projeto na África, é possível ver claramente como foi transformador e maravilhoso para todos envolvidos.
