Edward Johnson PS students learn hip-hop dance through DancED
January 13, 2020
GUELPH, Ontario – Students at Edward Johnson Public School have been busy this month learning a series of dance moves through the DancED Movement Project.
The DancED Movement Project started in Edmonton as a one-day volunteer commitment for dancers Andrea Gregoria and Krista Deady and spread across Canada. According to their website, word of this unique dance program spread through Edmonton “and the duo soon discovered that this side project could turn into the rewarding career in the arts they’ve always wanted.”
This dance project is a school-wide project with every student invited to participate regardless of their skillset. As a school, students decided to learn a hip-hop dance.
Students spent two weeks learning their hip hop moves in the gym in groups of two classes at a time with DancED instructors.
According to school principal Katherine Wainman, students are so excited about this you can see kids practicing their dance moves outside during recess.
All the hard work of students will be showcased for parents and guardians at the end of this week at John F. Ross CVI’s E.L. Fox Auditorium.
