Dance Week at Riverside

posted in: Home Page News | 0

This week, Riverside students and staff were treated to the outstanding performances and dance instruction of some of our local dance studio students.  On Monday we welcomed Emma McLellan and Lauren Lane from JJ Dance Studio who shared some beautiful pointe and ballet performances and showed students that ballet develops the fundamental skills of balance, strength and flexibility that all athletes need. On Tuesday, Ella Ouderkirk, Cecilia Broadbent (from JJ Dance Studio) and Annaliese Duffield (from Muskoka Dance Academy) showed students the arm and foot positions used in Jazz and taught the students a fun new routine for Dance Monkey.  Finally, we were thrilled to welcome some more of  JJ Dance’s finest, Will Demaine and Kayley Wright. They taught our students about the GPA fundamentals of hiphop (Grounded, Power & Attitude) and the kids were excited to “throw down” their newly taught hiphop moves in an awesome routine.  A big thank you to all involved in making this Intro To Dance Week a success!
