Rosenberg, Paul Colonial Dance History,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
What did people do before iPods, Xbox and SkyZone? They sang, made their own music, and danced! Are you looking for a way to bring the Colonial era to life on a budget? Get your audience to think like a colonial! They will learn firsthand how people have socialized for many generations and hear anecdotes from American (and global) history. Encourage them to come in costume from clothing they already have – or make their own. Colonial New York and New England were a crossroads of trade, commerce and culture, influenced by Dutch, French, English, African and Native American among many other peoples and traditions. Show the children how “multicultural” means more than just skin color and that it is not a new concept. The audience will connect with centuries-old traditions and participate in the traditional house party dances as generations of Americans have done – by dancing! Squares, contras and circle dances brought to American from Europe and Africa. Origins of traditional folk instruments (fiddle, modern and gourd banjo, mandolin, flute, penny whistle, piano, recorder, percussion, and more) taught during a sit-down period to talk about the dancing, music, instruments, and cultures.
