Michigan: A Creative Place
"This dance work was adapted from Gwen Frostic's My Michigan, her first
book which was published in 1957. The dances showed natural occurrences
like flowers, from seeds in the soil to magnificent blooms. Birds, the
many species that fill our skies with mesmerizing flight patterns and
song. The Great Lakes and all their wonder - from calm stillness to
thunderous. waves. Then we have our man-made contributions - the great
Mackinac Bridge, our prestigious universities, and the creative and
routine work that industry provides us. Lessons incorporated with this
project included topics of economics, civics and geography."
