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!
