Alongside our usual monthly activities, we were able to offer something new and innovative to our Environmental Club students at Moreomaoto Primary School. We hosted Ms Ana Raquel Sales, an MSc student from the Universidade de Aveiro, Portugal who our Founder and Director, Dr Kate Evans is supervising. Ana is studying Environmental Science and with a passion and skill in ballet and contemporary dance experience, her Masters study is focused on using dance as a medium for spreading conservation awareness and highlighting conservation issues, through developing a dance with students to communicate elephant conservation.
Ms Sales conducted her training with a group of 22 students from Moreomaoto Primary School, who were very interested and enjoyed her instruction, coming up with wonderfully creative dances to express how an elephant might interact with other elephants and humans
Prior to her time with us in Botswana she worked with a group of ballet student in Portugal and developed a beautiful dance which was performed in a secondary school to see what messages were communicated.
By engaging the students we work with in different ways, such as through this programme, we believe we will inspire more young people to be the environmental stewards of the future and with your support we are making those opportunities possible. Thank you.
