North Middle School’s eighth-graders participated in the “Dancing Classrooms” arts-in-education curriculum that culminated in a gala evening performance in the school gym. The 10-week, 14-hour program integrates physical education, music, and character education. Students learned self-confidence, respect for others, social awareness, and cooperative teamwork. They also gained an appreciation of cultural diversity through the variety of dances taught, including foxtrot, merengue, rumba, salsa, swing, tango, and waltz.
