On Thursday, May 21st, at 2pm, the 8th grade students will be competing in the fifth annual 8th Grade Dance Contest. Over the years, this dance contest has become a highlight of the school year. The students in Mr. DePerry’s PE classes are doing a 2 ½ week dance unit, practicing and performing line dances to country and modern music. The 8th graders are divided into groups of 7 and asked to find music and put together a 90-second dance routine. Over the course of the dance unit, they must collaboratively design, practice, and master their dance routine. The culmination is sixteen dance groups performing on stage in front of the student body and a panel of judges. Parents are welcome to attend. You will be amazed!
