“Dance is absolutely necessary for children’s education,” says award winning Queens 5th grade teacher Neme Alperstein. She ought to know, as she has seen its impact on the numerous children she has taught during the over fifteen years she’s partnered with The Joyce Theater Dance Education Program for Schools. Neme has worked with a team of teachers at her school and with Teaching Artist Susan Thomasson and the Joyce Education Department to bring dance into the curriculum and into the lives of children.
Her students, a mini United Nations, have discovered that there are no boundaries or borders with dance, only possibilities. They’ve learned critical skills, danced and created dances with each other and with dance artists and viewed performances of national and international dance companies on the Joyce stage.
