Under the direction of Emily Minkow, Riverwood International Charter School hosted their 1st annual Community-Based Instruction (CBI) music therapy talent show on Wednesday May 16th. All of the students participated through self-selected acts such as singing, dancing, telling jokes, making “fireworks” through switch manipulation, using American Sign Language (ASL) to sing, and presenting songs made through music technology. What set this show apart from others was the audience participation! The students invited the audience to dance and sing with them from their seats, and even taught them body percussion that matched the song being sung. Following the performance, there was a PTA-sponsored breakfast reception and art exhibit, featuring student works made with their Adaptive Art teacher, Mrs. Ashley Greer Groninger. Way to go, Raiders!
