Dance of the Insects
A Becky Valls and Company production
Performed by Joani Trevino and Toni Valle
The study of entomology is now twice the fun when Dance of the Insects becomes a duet! Dancers Toni Valle and Mallory Horn convey the characteristics of insects through Ms. Valls' striking choreography, music, and poetry. Accompanied by the clever poetry of Paul Fleischman, these professional dancers demonstrate through movement a caterpillar's metamorphosis and the social behavior of bees. Other dances include the Busy Ant, Firefly, Phantom the Flying Cockroach, and Two Too Many Ladybugs. Insect body parts become a springboard for student participation through creative movement and discussion of choreographic elements. This program will help students see insects in a new and captivating way.
