for Book with Music/Theatrical

Looking for resources to help your students express themselves, release pent-up energy, and build joy in the classroom together?

Written with all teachers and all children in mind, regardless of ability, the award-winning and best-selling I Can Dance series has been adopted by English and French language school boards across Canada, as well as thousands of individual teachers and schools.

The books support educators and helping professionals to build social and emotional health in learning communities of all kinds. Teachers use these books everyday to foster self-expression, inclusion and community-building in their classrooms.

Primarily designed for students in Kindergarten to Grade 6, each of the six books in this series is accompanied by a CD that contains rousing music, as well as guided audio facilitation (English version by Hannah) to assist educators of all backgrounds – even those with no dance experience! – to bring dance and creative movement to their classrooms.

The books are incredibly easy to use: simply read the book out loud to your students, and then play the accompanying CD to get dancing! You can choose the tracks with voice-over facilitation to guide your students through the activities, or choose the music-only tracks if you wish to guide your students directly.

Highlights

  • Facilitator’s Support – detailed resource guide helps teachers and parents create emotionally safe environments for children to express themselves through movement
  • Includes a CD with verbal guidance and original music by Gato Fuentes of Drama Sound
  • Features layouts that clearly link thematic concepts to matching physical expressions

All Hannah’s books are also available in French
