About the artist
Malke Rosenfeld is a percussive dance teaching artist based in Bloomington, Indiana. Malke is a National Young Audiences Credentialled Residency percussive dance teaching artist, Heinemann author, and TEDx presenter. Her work focuses on the intersection between percussive dance and mathematics and how to best illustrate these connections for students. Malke delights in creating rich environments in which children and their adults can explore, make, play, and talk math based on their own questions and inclinations. In her program Math in Your Feet percussive dance becomes the platform for a robust choreographic inquiry into mathematical thinking, practices and topics. Malke says of her work: “I really enjoy creating learning environments in which children become dance makers and math makers at the same time. I love the look of satisfaction on learners’ faces when they realize they’ve worked hard and have a completely original piece of math/dance choreography to show for it.” To learn more about Malke, visit her website www.malkerosenfeld.com.
