DESCRIPTION

Come join several of your Middle School friends who will be presenting

things they learned while in Kenya. We will have a brief presentation about

life in a Masai village, and then the students will teach you a little Swahili.

We will learn the bead making craft done by the Masai women, and we will

learn some songs sung and games played by Masai children. It should be

lots of fun!

Welcome to the world of Japanese art! A fun, interactive workshop focused

around the portrayal of Japanese culture through anime and manga. Enjoy

tasty Japanese snacks and candy, and feel free to cosplay as your favorite

anime character!

This workshop will discuss various aspects of Indian culture. You'll get a

taste of traditional foods and a chance to experience Bollywood beats as

well as the popular henna body art used throughout the Middle East and

South Asia.

Participants will need to submit a permission slip for henna.

This workshop aims to build cultural bridges through people, places,

products and traditions. Using personal experiences and images from

Germany and close interaction with the audience, students will gain new

knowledge and cross-cultural experiences. Using posters, photographs,

personal experiences and questions from the audience, participants will

reach a level of knowledge to appreciate another country and its people.

Dance is an ancient tradition that lies at the crux of Indian culture. In this

workshop, we will explore Indian culture through Bollywood dancing: a

style that, in recent decades, has emerged as a fun and exciting fusion of

the many different types of Indian dance! We will spend the majority of our

time teaching you a segment of the dance that the Upper School Indian

Dance Group performed at the 2012 Cary Diwali Festival. At the end, when

we're done dancing and performing for each other, we can cool down with

some delicious mango ice cream!

What if the earth was a village of 30 people? How would resources be

distributed? This workshop will look at the world's population,

consumption patterns and how our own behaviors affect others around the

globe. We will problem-solve how we can enjoy our resources and also

change the lives of our global neighbors for the better.

Follow the Tai Chi diagram (Yin/Yang symbol) as we connect mind and body

through Chinese internal style martial arts. Frolic with crane, bear, monkey,

deer, and tiger in 5-element energy work (Qigong). Explore how no thing

becomes some thing.

Female to female friendships are intensely powerful, close and meaningful

relationships, from middle school through adulthood. We often define

ourselves through our relationships with female friends, embodying the

Ubuntu concept “I am because of you, you are because of me.” Join 8th

grade girls and women faculty as we explore who we are as individuals and

who we are in relationship with each other. Female faculty will share their

stories-how they thought and felt about themselves and their relationships

with friends and peers in middle school-and how their experiences shaped

who they are now. Girls will be asked to consider and share the messages

and meaning these stories hold for you. We will consider the “rules” that

govern female friendships, the strength and power of these friendships,

and strategies for dealing with the relationship drama that girls and women

create. There will be lots of time for sharing, discussion and reflection in a

relaxed and supportive atmosphere. You will come away from this

workshop with deeper self-understanding and skills for judging less and

loving more about yourself and others.

8 th GRADE GIRLS ONLY

Students will get to be a part of a multitude of activities that will allow

them to learn more about themselves and the people around them. They

will focus on religion, gender, and socioeconomic status and how they are

influenced by those core identifiers every day.

7 th and 8 th GRADE STUDENTS ONLY

Students will learn about Turkey--where it is located, its culture, its cuisine,

and its historical and touristic locations.

This workshop is presented by renowned guitarists- Russian seven string

guitarist Vadim Kolpakov and six string guitarist Alex Gorodezky. Students

will explore Gypsy Guitar Style along with overall guitar playing secrets of

the top line virtuoso players. Students are encouraged to bring their

acoustic guitars. In addition, students will learn how to use body percussion

techniques to support guitarists on a stage.
