This program focuses on the heritage of African-Americans and the journey from slavery to freedom. Your performer will demonstrate how storytelling, music, and dance were used to preserve their unique cultures and instill morals and values.
Through interaction and participation, students will discover how these lessons helped people endure the harsh realities of slavery in colonial times.
Colonial Dance Program
All members of Colonial society danced, from kids to slaves to the aristocracy. “Virginians will dance or die” wrote an 18th-century diarist. What better time than the 21st century to learn a few “new” dance steps and learn the role of dance in Colonial America from a historical perspective.
The group will be asked to join in and learn both the etiquette and steps to 3 or 4 different dances.
Early American Medical Practices
This program focuses on the practices of medicine in the 18th century when the treatment was oftentimes worse than the illness or injury.
Examine and compare the contents of a practicing physician’s bag with that of the modern-day doctor, participate in a mock amputation and dental extraction, review the theories, treatments, medicines, nursing methodologies, and scientific studies of the times.
