Goldstein, Dana Lady of Copper, the musical story of the Statue of Liberty and Immigration History,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
Lady of Copper is the musical story of the Statue of Liberty and Emma Lazarus, the poet who composed the inspiring words on the statue's base "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free..." This show celebrates immigration and the diversity that makes America strong. Now in its 9th year, this original musical has been called "the best arts-in-education assembly we have ever had" (Arts Coordinator), "a great way to celebrate the values of America" (New York Times), and "a poignant reminder of everything for which we should be thankful" (Big Apple Parent). Geared for students in grades K-6, this fun and educational production is a perfect addition to any American History curriculum. In recent years, many schools have chosen the show as an educational and uplifting way to commemorate September 11th. Lady of Copper is also appropriate for Black History Month, Women's History Month, Memorial Day, July 4th and other holiday celebrations.

Florez, Karla Tamarindo Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Tamarindo is a children's book adapted to be performed as a story telling and dance form. It shows how boys and girls from El Canal del Dique region in the Carribean coast of Colombia love to paint their bodies with black paint as a remembrance of the period in slavery and the freedom from it. A special characteristic in this story is the use of facial gestures. I retell the story by telling of a boy whom is loved throughout the town and enjoy dancing in despite of living in reduced circumstances. Values like rejoice, love and courage are shown in this story while dancing and keeping the contagious rhythm of Danza negra.
