AYJ's dance classes participated in the OCDSB Dance Day on May 2nd. Students were given the opportunity to experience professional workshops in a variety of world dance styles driven and guided by professional Canadian dancers and choreographers – many of whom are local. The day ended on a high note with each dance program performing a dance piece. This day was a great opportunity for the students to try different styles of dance as well as showcase their hard work.
This semester’s dance class will be performing in their Dance Showcase on June 6th at . All are welcome to come and enjoy a great night of dancing!
