We want everyone to know how much we loved having “iLumiDance Revealed” perform for us at North Elementary. The Columbia Basin Allied Arts organized, and we think paid for, having the Rainbow Dance Theatre come and teach us the coding that they use to make their puppets and their clothes come “alive” with light.
Fourth- and fifth-graders got to work with an expert dancer on the computers learning the coding, and then we worked together to make the puppets that light up in the dark move. We even made our puppet explode into pieces when the music told us to.
We all got to sit in our dark gym and watch the lights tell a story. A lot of kids liked the butterfly song, with the huge butterfly that flew around. We knew that the dancers practiced a lot because they made their lights tell the story very well.
Allied Arts even gave each of us a coupon to go watch the whole show at Big Bend. We want to see more of the dancing with light that they can turn on and off themselves or use a computer to run all of the lights in their costumes. If you want to see a terrific performance go watch “iLumiDance Revealed.”
