Description

Professional Development Workshop for teachers of grades preK–5 • Presented by Kelsey Billiot, PACE Teaching Artist

Using movement in the classroom teaches students physical regulation and emotional expression while nurturing kinesthetic learners. In this workshop,  participants will learn to add simple movement to existing routines and to integrate movement into the day and into class curriculum in new ways, with the recurring theme of wellness. Social and Emotional Learning incorporates self- and social-awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making. Blending creativity, self care, and curriculum lends itself to a deeper comprehension for learners.

Acadiana Center for the Arts

Our mission is fostering art and culture in Acadiana.

Founded in 1975, Acadiana Center for the Arts (“AcA”) is a community-supported nonprofit organization that fosters art and culture in Acadiana. Since its founding, AcA has developed as a major force, shaping the future of public education and community development in South Louisiana.

AcA supports the creation of new works of art, exhibits, festivals, performances, and public art across an eight-parish region that includes Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Mary, and Vermilion Parishes.  

AcA aims to bring equitable access to the arts and supports fair compensation of artists. On average, AcA serves over 300,000 people annually and provides fair compensation to 2,700 artists.  

In 2013, the AcA merged with the Performing Arts Society of Acadiana (“PASA”), whose mission was to educate, inspire, entertain, and culturally enrich the people of south Louisiana by providing local access to a diverse range of the performing arts. This merger supported the vision of both organizations and provided much-needed support to PASA’s programs. Founded in 1989, PASA served as a leading voice in the performing arts in South Louisiana for close to three decades.
