Comments By Teachers & Administrators

Very well documented - I thought that explaining the Charlston's part in
the development of swing very interesting - I loved it!
– Lynn Slater, Teacher

They held everyone's interest K-5 for 45 minutes.
Knew exactly how to present the material
– Julie Lustic, Teacher

We were studying the Harlem Renaissance as a school wide
theme, they tailored the program to meet the school's focus.
The artists "spoke" to the audience. They used different
medias to demonstrate the era.
– Sharon Post, Teacher

Very energetic! Students were able to see the origins of many
current dances.
– Mrs Ware, Teacher

The students were very engaged by the dancing and music.
The students loved to try some of the dance steps themselves.
– Caroline Zinamon, Teacher

The children really seemed to enjoy the program and they
enjoyed participating in the "group dance". The presenters
were engaging and they danced well. Seeing film clips of
dance from early periods was good.
– Mrs Kankaska, Teacher

Not too much talk or theory, not too short on background - just right!
Lot's of audience participation, presenters handled the students, related to them,
and did a quality presentation
