iLumiDance

From Rainbow Dance Theater, and the creators of iLumiDance, SKEF is hosting a workshop for middle schoolers that combines the fundamentals of coding with art and dance performance. Over the week-long workshop, students will acquire the skills to utilize computer programming in the creation of their own unique iLumiDance: a dance technology project that allows students to collaborate in teams to code (choreograph) the movements and light sequences of an electronic light-wire puppet. This innovative, project-based learning opportunity is not one to be missed this summer! Space is limited.
