Hip Hop Performances

The school is committed to helping children achieve new and exciting dreams, as well as learn different skills. Part of this is the opportunity to be involved in hip-hop dance.

This gives students confidence and opens their mind to new avenues that they may have not considered – critical in this stage of their development.

This club meets for 8 weeks and the students view demonstrations, participate in hands on activities and have discussions that facilitate their interest in and understanding of science.
