Got Swords? We do!

Our students in Mr. Solarz' 5th grade class are learning a special dance for their upcoming concert. It's called North Skelton Sword Dance. I first learned this activity in my graduate studies at VanderCook College of music in 2007. The students use 'swords' and work in groups of 5 to do the various different movements that make up the dance. The ultimate finish is to lock the swords into a star and present it to the audience. These 5th graders have proven themselves to be up to the task, and are doing great!

Students begin with 'high basket'.

The big finish! The Star.
