Ms. Sheehan, dance teacher at King Arts, found a great way to keep her students engaged outside of the classroom. Many of her students grew to love dance after spending time in her class, but with only a short amount of class time each week, they wanted a way to extend their learning at home. She uses an interactive iPad app that allows students to choreograph their own dances, upload it into the app, and see how the body reacts to these movements. Using this tool, students can extend their knowledge of dance further and beyond the end of their time in the dance studio.
