At PS 90 in Coney Island, dance students are busily preparing for their winter dance concert today! Over 40 1st and 2nd graders, working with teaching artist Kathy Fleurissaint, have been honing their dance moves.
Here’s what they had to say:
Analia, 6 – “I like the songs we have for freestyle.”
Eman, 7 – “In dance we practice our dance a lot and have fun.”
Michael, 7 – “We are practicing for a Christmas show, where we’ll be dancing for the parents and the rest of the school!”
Ariel, 6 – “My favorite part is the freestyle dance because you freeze and then you dance and even when you are disqualified you’re not out, because you can help Ms. Kathy with the pausing and calling out numbers.”
Bruce, 7 – “The most exciting part of dance when we dance and play games because dance shows you how to move your body.”
