Rainbowdance Travels to Connecticut

April 2019 was a busy month for BCF! In addition to ongoing trainings in Sonoma, CA, Washington, D.C., and locally in Boston, Dicki, Rachel & Robert travelled to Enfield, CT to spread the magic of Rainbowdance. For the very first time in Enfield area school districts, the largest gathering of educators, mental health clinicians, school administrators, and community members came together to train in the Basic Attunement Model of Rainbowdance. Congratulations to the 37 newest Rainbowdance trainees!

Welcome to our Newsletter!

We are excited to present our first newsletter! We hope you enjoy reading about all of Boston Children’s Foundation’s offerings, events, workshops, classes, and more! Each Newsletter, BCF will highlight a member of our community. This quarter we highlight Alicia Brewster, who has had great success using Rainbowdance with children in foster care.

Congratulations to BCF’s New Basic Rainbowdance Trainees!

BCF is proud to welcome new trainees to our Rainbowdance family. On November 30 & December 1, thirteen clinicians, graduate level students, and early childhood educators gathered together to learn the structure and theory behind Rainbowdance, BCF’s music, movement, and story-telling intervention. BCF was delighted to welcome trainees from local Boston areas as well as Montana and Taiwan!

Duncan Youth Programming Brought to Washington, D.C.

This past year Dicki Johnson Macy has been implementing her dance curriculum, The Art & Technique of Isadora Duncan, with colleague Cynthia Word, Artistic Director of Word Dance Theater in Washington, D.C. This semester launches a brand new year of classes as teachers prepare to inspire new generations of Duncan dancers. We look forward to the continued collaboration between BCF and WDT, as Duncan programming for youth continues to flourish.
