Momentum Dance Company is delighted to announce its children’s performances for spring 2014. The company returns to the Coral Gables Public Library, where is has presented a four-part series since 2000. All performances are followed by a movement workshop for kids in the audience. Workshops activities are created around topics introduced in the performances. “The best way to understand and appreciate dance is by participating in it”, explains Delma Iles. “Our young audiences grow from creating movement with the guidance of the dancers.” Workshops culminate in a mini-performance by the participating kids.
