Dos Rios Cultural Dance Club

Our Dos Rios Dance Club has about 55 members who have been participating consistently since October. Students have been learning several dances and are encouraged to practice at home. Stretching exercises are incorporated before they practice their dances. Students will perform at school assemblies, community events and others. Local dance companies will present to our students and will invite them to participate in their summer dance programs.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Having enough staff to teach 55 is hard. We have 2 middle schoolers who now help. We will also contact our local university.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are also learning about other types of exercise, healthy eating, and being active. They are enthusiastic about learning new dances.
