“My Class and I enjoyed the program very much. Ms. Anna our instructor was very knowledgeable. I learned from her as well as my students. One of my boys is very shy but by a few classes of the program he was so engaged with Ms. Anna and the program, he was answering her questions and dancing when it was time to dance. This could have not made me happier.” - Pre-K Teacher, Orchard STEM School
“The impact the program had on my students is greater than just an opportunity to dance. It required the students to control their movements, be self-aware/safe with their bodies and use their minds to understand and feel rhythms.” - Kindergarten Teacher, Adlai Stevenson Elementary
