We are so lucky to have 3rd Street Beat with us this week working with all of the students on some dance. I have never seen students so engaged and their instructor Carlo is amazing with the students. What a great way to promote the arts within the school by having a passionate performer share his knowledge with the students.
On Friday, May 7 at 1pm, the students will have the opportunity to showcase some of their moves, followed by a performance done by 3rd Street Beats. I personally am so excited to see the kids showcase what they have learned in a way that they are truly engaged.
What I have loved most about the week, is that every time a staff member is in the gym, they are also taking part in the dance with the kids. Not for something “just to do”, but because it is fun, relevant, and a great way to exercise. I remember dreading dance class as a student in my elementary school but am finding myself envious of the opportunity these students are getting right now.
Looking forward to Friday!
