The I Can Make a Dance series will be a set of dance education books that make science and nature more understandable through the exploration of movement.
The goal with I Can Make a Water Dance was to create a book that helps children make connections with the natural world and see themselves as part of it. By observing images of water and translating them into their own bodies, children begin to make dance.
Young dancers will explore dance movement guided by new vocabulary and poetry. They will therefore develop a greater understanding of water, and of their own bodies, while internalizing a deep love of the world they live in.
The journey of the book follows the path of the water cycle from evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection. Throughout the book, dancer images are paired with a question that sets readers on the path to creating their own water dances.
