Jim Gill’s List of Dances
I wasn’t going to participate this week but became inspired by Michelle’s blog entry from last week’s Flannel Friday. Michelle asked about story time songs and in the discussion that followed in the comments, several of us talked about Jim Gill.
Several years ago at a library assistant’s workshop, Jim Gill was performing. He mentioned his List of Dances song and recommended making an actual list. It was such a good idea, a former staff member did just that. She took a long piece of navy blue felt, created a banner out if it, cut out colorful letters. (At the time we didn’t have the tiny ellison die cuts… but with the smaller alphabets out there, it is doable. Once again, I did not do it. I just get to work here. ♥) and viola, she made this … “a list that is sixteen dances long.”
