Fourth graders at Lido Elementary in Long Beach recently put on their dancing shoes for a culminating showcase of their 10-week Dancing Classrooms of Long Island program. The hour-long showcase took place in the school’s gymnasium and students impressed family, friends and staff with their performances of the Foxtrot, Tango, Rumba, Merengue, Waltz and Swing.
During a Dancing Classrooms residency, Teaching Artists create an environment and model behaviors that offer young people a place to thrive and engage in the joy, discipline and teamwork of social dance. The Dancing Classrooms residencies were made possible with support from the Long Beach Public School District.
