Future Quest 2022

Future Quest 2022

*Offsite
Friday, Nov 11, 8:00am to 2:00pm

FutureQuest is a partnership between DCSC and MMSD with a goal of provide better career awareness to MS students in Dane County. The organizers wanted to create an event that allowed students not to read or watch a video about a job, but rather, to "experience" what it would be like to have a job in that field. Partners set out to create a "HANDS ON" event to share different career paths with EVERY 7th or 8th Grader in Dane County!

Madison Public Library will be attending and have a booth for students to visit.

Creative Movement and Dance for Little Ones with the Isthmus Dance Collective

PlayLab
Friday, Nov 11, 9:15am to 10:00am

Enjoy dance, creative movement, songs and stories that get children thinking creatively and problem solving while having fun. Creative Movement and Dance is brimming with energy, curiosity, creativity, and fun geared towards kids aged 2-4 and but with plenty of fun to be had for caregivers and siblings. All levels of participation are welcome and we suggest caregiver interaction especially for children under 3yrs.

Dancers will learn about physical and spatial concepts by exploring the ideas through self generated movement and play. The highest priorities are having fun, learning concepts that are useful for both dance and life at large, and expanding physical and linguistic vocabularies.

Get moving with curiosity and self expression with IDC's dynamic dance artists!
