Windfall Dancers, Inc., the sponsor of the Literacy Project, is a not-for-profit education and performance organization which promotes the appreciation and practice of modern dance. Its educational programs are designed to stimulate interest in dance and related art forms, and to use these art forms to enhance the educational process.
Windfall's Literacy Project is designed to meet the needs of students who learn best through music and movement.
Stories for project are selected to connect with the reading curriculum in area elementary schools, via title, author, "lifeskills", or subject matter.
Additional titles and topics may be developed on request to fit a classroom's need. Please contact Windfall to request that a particular piece be developed.
