A Magical Performance and Day
It is so hard to believe that in just 9 days we put together one of the most amazing CAC Units ever! The art projects, songs, dances, acting and learning truly took on a life of their own. One of the teachers in the audience said that the performance was "EPIC." I agree. So many memories were made during these two weeks - not just for the students. The teachers all came away with a better understanding of a part of the world that we often forget and never imagine actually visiting. All of this could NEVER have happened without the amazing Grosvenor Teaching Fellowship through National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions. It is because of them that we brought Antarctica to Chicago. Enjoy!
This video is from our dress rehearsal. There are still some bumps but it gives a good idea of just ONE part of the show. The cast of 200 kids went performed about the Drake Passage, Gerlache Straits, and Brown Bluff. Not to mention that there was an amazing finale that brought audience members to tears!
