Dance Workshop Review Spring 2010

with artist Lesley Walker Fitzpatrick
“My class was extremely fortunate to
participate in the grade 5 dance workshop
with Lesley Walker Fitzpatrick just last week.
They had a fantastic day. They benefitted
tremendously … Lesley taught them with
gentle love and understanding, and infinite
patience. I was amazed by how well they
did. Students that are usually reticent and
reserved blossomed and took leadership
roles, some for probably the first time all
year. I held my breath when we got to the
improvisational part of Lesley’s program, but
it was fantastic to see how safe and comfort-
able my students felt, and how willing they
were to take risks in front of their peers. It
was truly a wonder. Every student bloomed
and grew, not just the students who take
dance classes outside of school, or the more
outgoing and confident students – literally
every student enjoyed the day, thought it
was awesome and made progress. It was a
wonderful day. I would like to thank Lesley,
and the Foundation, for giving us such a
great opportunity!”
