"Within the first ten minutes of observing and participating in classes last Wednesday I the could see that Ailey Arts In Education Teaching Artist, Nicole Kadar, was a master teacher... She introduced descriptive words and modeled ways for the children to move their bodeis, never losing the children's attention. The children eagerly followed her instructions and danced to a variety of music including classical music from Swan Lake. She kept them moving throughout the entire session. The look on the Children's faces as they moved to the music was excitement and pure joy!"

"Three valuable things I learned from the class is: (1) dealing with children’s behaviors, especially unusual ones; (2) developing a lesson plan and making it happen- structure of the class, designing the right tasks, achieving the objectives; (3) use of props, music and plenty of imageries."
