BYU Kinnect dance education company plans free performance April 1

Brigham Young University’s Kinnect, a dance education company, will present a theatrical event, “Klassroom Kinnections,” Thursday, April 1, at 6 p.m. at the BYU Museum of Art. Admission is free.

Under the direction of Marilyn Berrett, the company will perform a lively and interactive dance lecture-demonstration. The group will also present art-inspired movement responses to the “Mirror-Mirror” art exhibit and other displays throughout the museum.

Founded in 2002, Kinnect aims to enhance schools’ core curriculum-based dance education by providing instructive dance residences for students and faculty. Following the U.S. National Dance Standards and the Utah State Dance Core curriculum, members of the group participate in creating and presenting dance lecture-performances to young people in local public schools, museums and community settings.

Every spring, the group presents its unique style of educational and fun dance “informances” at elementary schools throughout Utah. Kinnect has presented at both national and international dance education conferences, including the Dance and the Child International Conference this past summer in Kingston, Jamaica.
