Organizers say this virtual educational experience, intended for students and educators of all kids including home educators, will work similarly to the recent “Five Days With Step Afrika!” Registration began Friday, Jan. 8. Once student groups and educators have registered via the DaytonLive.org website at daytonlive.org/blackviolin, they will receive an e-mail with access to video and other content that will begin Monday, Feb. 1, and end Sunday, March 14. A resource guide with more educational information will also be available.
