Choreographer, dance educator, and CORE collaborator Leslie Scates was recently named one of the Houston's 100 Creatives by Houston Press.

Leslie has created numerous commissions for CORE, including last season's herd, and recently became a Dynamic X-change teacher, working with students at The Monarch School.

"I feel honored to work with the company... No other company works quite the way CORE does. So fertile and humane. Across disciplines. Across borders."

Leslie's work at The Monarch School teaching movement classes began this past spring:
I said yes to the opportunity to work with a population on the autistic spectrum because I have a deep interest in therapeutic movement and also a keen interest in brains that think and operate differently than my own.  I love the work and the students are delightful and challenging. Some of the needs that I feel the movement classes meet for these movers are:
  • Stress reduction
    • Somatic awareness 
    • Kinesthetic awareness 
    • Sensory integration 
    • Collaborative skill acquisition 
    • Social skill acquisition 
    • Range of motion increases 
    • Motor skill refinement; gross and fine 
    I am looking forward to continuing my work with the Monarch school students. It is a laboratory for me as an educator and dancer to listen very closely to the emergent needs of a class of individuals, and to provide a conduit for creative expression, social interaction, collaboration and movement pathways.  These students are filled with language that inspires me to keep setting and reaching personal goals. And we have fun and sometimes we have intense moments. This is all valuable to me. I am glad to be a part of the students' weekly movement program at Monarch. I am also deeply grateful and my artistic process has been enhanced and shaped by being a part of CORE performance company.

    When choosing a topic, it is very important to find a topical scientific problem. After formulating a topic, all information is searched for on it. Moreover, the search should be carried out in the relevant databases and existing publications. This is exactly what the company's specialists do literature service After that, study all the developments and adjust the further course of research

    As a student, I noticed that the topic of writing assignments is very relevant among students. Many turn to specialists in this field for help, as most students work or have families. I have always handled such tasks on my own, but due to the heavy workload, there is not always time to give the material proper time. And I decided to turn to a similar service write my essay I didn’t think that the guys could make my theme so cool. And it's really easier to order works from such wonderful authors and go about your business. I am impressed. Recommend.
