Rethinking New Orleans Schools Through Film and Dance
Watch this creative expression of how poor eating habit's, lack of exercise/ physical activity, as well as sub-par cafeteria food options lead a student becoming one of the living dead. Allies of New Orleans Liberation Academy, Kids Rethink New Orleans Schools, used some of the lesson learned in their elective courses (Youtube, dance, and visual arts) over the course of their seven week summer program to produce this short film/ music video. The Rethinker's incorporated Dr. Toni Yancey exercise startagey called "Instant Recess," a ten minute interactive workout that can be before performed at a students desk, to provide an example of how to combat the health related issue associated with unhealthy eating and exercise cultures in New Orleans schools.
