August 2013 Co’Motion in the Gardens: 4 Day Series


Get up and move, Ames with Co’Motion in the Gardens this summer. Valerie Williams' Co’Motion Dance Theater has partnered with Reiman Gardens this August for a series of youth movement workshops! Focusing on active rather than learned movement for youth ages 8-14, this 4-week intensive combines participants’ artistic interpretation of the “Iowa Naturally” sculpture exhibit with inventive movement as well as health and nutrition education. Students will create concept choreography inspired by garden sculptures. Grasshoppers, seed pods, soaring birds, and more will provide the movement inspiration throughout the gardens. Students will then showcase their favorites at a culminating performance on August 25. It’s a perfect way to “Move It” this summer!

Note: For healthy moves, you need healthy food - please bring a lunch to each session with at least 3 different colors of food, and a frozen bottle of water!

This event is a 4 Day Series throughout the month of August. The events will take place from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM the following Saturdays:

August 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th.

Pre-registration with payment is required by Saturday, July 27. Take $2 off if you've signed up for VERB! (use promo code 'verb' below)
