On Wednesday, September 30th, the C.B. Jennings Elementary School, New London, was the stage for the “Literacy in Motion” program. Storytellers from the Connecticut Storytelling Center joined dancers from the Mystic Ballet, performing for students and their families.
Literacy In Motion highlights the importance of literacy, as narrated through storytelling intertwined with the art and beauty of dance. The stories that were performed that evening were Swan Lake, Carnival of Venice, Thieving Magpies, and Alice in Wonderland’s Tea Party.
