About the event

On Wednesday, March 18, 2020 from 6:00pm-7:00pm here is the dance theatre class schedule at the Fred Heutte Center.  There will be 3 stations set up: a music station, a cornhole station, and a garden tour station.  These stations will help us to build the part of the Successful Day of Fishing Script where the lazy character Sassouma tries to get out of doing any work when she goes fishing with Sogolon.

Music Station:  Sassouma claims she can't help make fishing baskets because she her hands are cramped.

  • Challenge:  What do cramped hands feel like?
  • Play the dununs for 1 minute without stopping then the djembe for 1 minute without stopping.
  • Record on the activity card what your hands feel like.

Cornhole Station:  Sassouma claims she can't cut the reeds because has a bad back.

  • Challenge:  How do you feel when you have a bad back?
  • Play cornhole first on one foot, next on your knees, then squatting down
  • Record on the activity card how a person with a bad back feels

Garden Tour Station:  Sassouma claims she will suffer for Sogolon if Sogolon is hurt while swimming out to place fishing traps

  • Challenge:  Is suffering different in different cases?
  • Play a frikywa bell while hopping through the hilly area of the garden, power walking around the walkway, and jogging around 3 trees (or climbing one)
  • Record on the activity card if there was any suffering with any of the activities
