Maine Jewish Museum

Rose Woods Dance Collaborative will be presenting “They Sat There, Feeling Happy Together”, a theatrical modern dance performance at the Maine Jewish Museum in Portland Maine.

The movement behind this show is inspired by the choreographers’ favorite childhood stories written by Jewish authors. This performance will highlight the work of Arnold Lobel (Frog and Toad), Shel Silverstein (The Giving Tree), Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are), and more classic stories we all love. RWDC will dive into the pages and bring audiences on an escape to the whimsical worlds inside of these iconic childhood stories. 


Before the show, RWDC will be hosting a free movement workshop for kids 6 and up. This workshop will demonstrate the creative tools they used to make “They Sat There, Feeling Happy Together”. Students are encouraged to bring their favorite book(s) to help them create their own movement.
