5th Graders Competing at the Colors of the Rainbow Dance Competition

Olivia and Patrick dance the tango.
  • 2016-2017 5th Grade Arts Residency

    Fifth grade students and their classroom teachers receive a semester-long course of dance instruction provided by our teaching artists at no cost to the students. Twenty, 50-minute lessons (twice-weekly for 10 weeks) are held at each partner school during the school day to ensure full student participation and facilitate curriculum integration. Students and teachers learn six social dances: the Merengue, Foxtrot, Rumba, Tango, Swing, and Waltz, as well as the historical and cultural origins of each dance. 

    Linwood Monroe Arts Plus 5th graders placed third at the Colors of the Rainbow Match on December 11, 2016.
