This week, to supplement 3rd graders social studies curriculum on countries of the world, students in Grade 3 have began their West African Dance residency program with teaching artists from the Roosevelt Island Main Street Theater. Students kicked off this 9 week residency program with a workshop introducing West African music and dance motifs and movements. Save the date for the demonstration performance for families and fellow students which will conclude this residency on Wednesday, November 19th at 9:15am. You can watch video from 2012 performance, and 2013 performance on YouTube below.
The cost for this program - including the resident artist, her assistant, costumes and live music - $4,000 is covered by your donations to the PTA! Thank you for making this program possible!
