Dancer / Instructor / Choreographer
Jeanne Limmer brings the inspiration of movement exploration to all areas of the curriculum through residencies, workshops, and family programs. For 22 years Jeanne has taught dance techniques - from classical and modern to jazz and tap - to pre-schoolers through adults at the Jeanne Limmer Dance Center in North Conway. In recent years she has traveled the state bringing movement exploration into the classroom, using movement as an exciting tool for exploring academics from science to math, environmental studies to geography, literacy to global citizenship. Children K-12 have learned to rely on each other while physically bringing these studies to life. Movement and rhythm are part of our everyday world and children naturally want to move and explore; for many, Jeanne's approach provides the switch that turns on the academic light bulb. She works with individual schools and communities to tailor her offerings to make specific curricular connections, and will arrive at your school ready to instill movement in everyone's day with her heart, mind and arms wide open.
