TEAM NICK AND SHANNON DALTON
were connected by mutual friends and were teamed up in India teaching for the American non-profit ASTEP (Artists Striving to End Poverty) and the Indian non-profit, TEACH FOR INDIA. Nick was in India for a 2 year stint as Director/Choreographer of the World Premiere musical MAYA, a tour starring 30 slum children from Teach For India in collaboration with the non-profit ASTEP. He co-wrote the book with Broadway’s David Goldsmith (MOTOWN THE MUSICAL) and co-designed the costumes/masks with animator Simi Nallaseth (ICE AGE), as well as composed music alongside multiple Broadway composers including Georgia Stitt, Lynn Shankel, James Sasser, Tim Rosser, and more. Shannon joined him on this journey to help with choreography, implementing the values based curriculum with the children, and in putting the show up.
Their dual teaching Projects include, but are not limited to:
MAYA The Musical, TEACH FOR INDIA (TFI), MUMBAI, INDIA
A Values Based musical that toured the country. Nick did everything for the creation of this project. Shannon’s main role with this project was to implement a developing arts and values based program in Mumbai with a set of 30 children to help expand the programming to new cities. All 60 children involved in this show went on a journey improving their English language learning (the show was in English) and participating in several service projects to spread their light and newfound knowledge with their communities. The children learned mindfulness and also assisted us in teaching in other classrooms in the arts, values, mindfulness, and yoga exercises.
100 ARTISTS PROJECT, TEACH FOR INDIA (TFI), PUNE, INDIA
They spent 3 months in the classrooms of 4th-8th graders in multiple schools teaching arts integration through a 12-week Arts, Values, Wellness, and Service based program they developed called The heART of Happiness. We explored meditation, service, values, music, dance, yoga, visual arts, story-telling, theatre, language, and voice and speech. Nick and Shannon also worked hand-in-hand with the teachers in each of these schools to train them in bringing arts integration into their classrooms in the future.
SUNRISE COMMUNITY CENTER, PUNE, INDIA
The Implementation of ARTS AND VALUES based programming with over 100 Pre-K – 10th graders (6 days a week) and the training of teachers on how to bring Arts integration into their classrooms.
MANAV SADHNA, AHMEDABAD, INDIA
They assisted in the development and stage-management of a values based musical for Manav Sadhna, PREM NO PARIVAR, in an effort to tell the stories of the 9 different slum communities this non-profit serves. They shared their programming with the National Gandhi Ashram and Manav Sadhna who then renovated the first Montessori School in India to begin using The heART of Happiness and other arts and values based curriculum they have developed.
TRANSCENDENCE YOUTH PROGRAM
Nick and Shannon worked together with Transcendence Theatre Company in Sonoma, CA to create a 10-week after-school program to help children discover how to be the best versions of themselves through explorations in Visual and Performing Arts. They implemented a 1st – 3rd grade and 5th – 8th grade program. Both programs were a huge success and were offered to students of low-income families free of charge.
