A seasonal selection of dance films for young people featuring three performances, Sunny Days, Insect Hands, and Night Tree, all filmed in the great outdoors. These performances will inspire you to look a little more closely at the world around you, get moving, and go outside.
With Sunny Days and Insect Hands, explore the ground and all its wriggling inhabitants. Both films celebrate the magic of the natural world in the spring/summer—rolling in long grass and feeling the warm sun on your face.
Night Tree is a two-part film based on Eve Bunting’s book of the same name. Come on a journey through the beautiful wintery forest to find a very special tree. Squelch through mud, sip hot chocolate, dance and play amongst the pines as you listen for birds and watch for animals!
Recommended for grades PreK-2 (ages 3-7)
