At our local elementary school we have an awesome program called NHDI, which stands for New Hampshire Dance Institute. Check out their website NHDI.
Once a year, there is an awesome instructor who comes in and teaches the entire school different dances with their themed song. It’s such a wonderful program that kids and parents both look forwards to. Here’s an excerpt from their website telling you about the program:
“The residency program brings a professional NHDI teaching artists into a school for a one, two or three week period. Our energetic teaching artists introduce children to the joy of the arts through dance, teamwork, listening, and practice, children learn that there is no end to what they can achieve with their bodies and their minds. The pride that comes as a result is unparalleled. The residency Program offers curriculum themed shows with dances that challenge elementary and middle school students. All students in the participating grade levels learn basic dance techniques and a dance choreographed specifically for their age and developmental level. At the end of the residency period, schools may elect at no additional cost to have students participate in a performance of their dances for friends, family and community members.”
Anyways, here’s my two girls dancing away, having a blast at their performance last week.
Does you school have a program like this?
