Silk Road Project at Madison Elementary
Photos taken for work of two members of Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Project - choreographer/dancer Preeti Vasudevan and violinist Shaw Pong Liu - visiting Madison Elementary School in Des Moines. The artists were visiting as part of Turnaround Arts, a national program at the Kennedy Center to integrate the arts with other areas of education. Six Des Moines schools take part in the program. Preeti and Shaw Pong worked with a 1st grade class on how music and dance can be incorporated with math lessons, and then performed with an all-school assembly.
