Dancing Towards Graduation

Seniors who completed their two-year International Baccalaureate dance course put on a recital in the auditorium for some of their peers and faculty. For the last two years, these students have been working on their physical fitness in this Phys Ed/IB class as they studied various types of dances and cultures. In their recital, students performed the dances they choreographed themselves as part of the work submitted to the IB for scoring. They began with American pop culture phenomenon Michael Jackson's Thriller, followed by some solo performances and group numbers influenced by their lessons in Latin Dance, Bollywood and Ukrainian Dance. The student dancers learned to compare and contrast dance styles across geography and history. Watch the group performance here.
