The 21st Century Holiday 2013 show at IS 218 began with a Afro-Caribbean/Calypso dance to the rhythm of “Soca Zouk for Santa” by Lucian Parrot. Many other programs presented in the interim and the dance group closed the show the West African dance, Kou Kou, choreographed to the Soca song “Jump” by Rupee. The dance class comes together utilizing mathematical solutions in order to learn dance every Monday and Wednesday from 3:15 – 5:15pm.
Shout out to the I.S. 218 dance teaching artist Farrah Bell! Her ability to recruit and retain 24 middle school students reflects her ability to engage, connect and inspire.
