The Body's Expression of Safety in a Global Pandemic
On June 6, 2020, Dr. Christina Devereaux offered a perspective for understanding children's emotional communication through the body. She helps the viewer understand how, through socially engaged movement experiences, we can support children in calming their nervous system and creating a sense of bodily safety.
The practical dance and movement exercises presented by Dr. Devereaux can therefore become an essential tool to support children in the period of uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this hour of NPR's The Colin McEnroe show, all things dance from ancient history, to modern, Hollywood dance movies are discussed.
