Now in its 18th year, Dance Espanol is a year-long education outreach program designed specifically for fourth-grade students; it teaches them discipline, dedication and self-awareness through the joy of dance. Dance Espanol is not a ballet program, but a way to teach students the benefits of applying themselves to a task involving both mental and physical challenges.
All the fourth-grade students here at Morningside will participate in the program over the course of the 28-30 weeks. Classes last for 45 minutes and are held during regular school hours. A portion of the class will be spent teaching the students basic dance curriculum, followed by choreography for the End-of-the-Year school performance.
