This program is an introduction to the art of dressage, as performed by the Spanish Riding School and Lippizaner Stallions of Austria. Participants will learn dance moves that mimick the moves of the horses, and can practice them in a simulated dressage arena with stick horses. They will learn moves such as the side pass, pirouette, flying changes, piaffe and passage. The history of the art will be taught using Margeurite Henry's book: The White Stallion of Lippiza. Students will be allowed to perform a KUR using classical music at the end of the program. Traveling along is Lilly, our miniature horse whom the children can meet and pet as the program finale. Dressage is the art of teaching horses to dance in harmony with themselves. It was originally developed by the Greek General Xenophon, as a means to train horses for war. Today it is performed both as an Olympic sport in the summer games and by those who wish to train their horses in the higher arts. The class will be conducted as a ballet class in a flat open area of the library. This program is suitable for the 2013 summer reading program.
