Exuberant Galumpha Gang combines artistic disciplines to go 'splish, splash'

The Discovery Center and the Galumpha Dance Company combined poetry, music, tumbling, acrobatics and interpretive dance in the fourth Galumpha Gang camp for kids as 37 children ages 7 to 18 to planned, practiced and performed "Water," a program of exercise, art and entertainment. The poetry, the movements and the music were all created by the children with help of the staff and interns. The acrobatic formations taught the children valuable lessons in coordination, cooperation, teamwork and trust. The poetry revealed some serious thought by some children about the many forms water takes and its importance in our lives.
