Festival of Learning

The Festival of Learning is a three day event dedicated to sharing and celebrating the creativity, hard work, in-depth exploration, and learning of our 2019/2020 school year.


Under the direction of Claire Calalo Berry during the spring semester, Marin Academy dance students worked either in partners or on their own to create short dance for the camera projects based on their current emotional and mental states related to sheltering in place. Exploring questions surrounding the “new normal,” the interpersonal dynamics of home, and how changes in our world have affected our thoughts and/or emotions, the dance filmmakers have translated free writing into movement. Working within the confines of shelter-in-place spaces, and with the limited resources available, these dancers have not only become choreographers, but are also acting as set and costume designers, music directors, and video editors.

The Marin Academy Music program is geared toward live performances at the end of each semester. The Covid-19 pandemic decisively ended the possibility of a live concert, and we had to swiftly change course from music performance to music production. Each musician had to set up a home studio, learn the fundamentals of digital music production and remote collaboration, and produce a song.
