From Gia Publicationsby Peggy Lyman and John M. Feierabend
Expressive Movements With Classical Music For All Ages
This package combines a DVD, guidebook, and audio CD to present 20 imaginative dances set to classical works from Brahms's Waltz in A-flat to Prokofiev's Romeo And Juliet.
The adaptable choreography is perfect for early childhood specialists, elementary music teachers, and dance educators for use with children of all ages. The movements reflect both the form and the expressive quality of the music, embodying Feierabend's theories of music and movement development and Lyman's belief in the emotional power of gesture.
Peggy Lyman is an acclaimed Principal Dancer and restager of the Martha Graham repertory. John M. Feierabend is considered one of the leading authorities on music and movement development.
With Move It!, understanding the organization of movement sequences, exploring personal and general space relating to others, and discovering inner feelings connected to beautifully expressive musical selections and movements can all be achieved. An approach that is as fun and expressive as it is educational!
