3rd Grade: Evening of Folk Dances and Singing Games:

The Amelia Elementary third grade music students of Mr. John Crandall and Dr. Tim Kloth hosted an “Evening of Folk Dances, Play Parties and Singing Games” on Tuesday, February 15. The students demonstrated dance figures such as “sashay,” “dosido” and “peel the banana” and then invited their parents, grandparents and siblings to join them on the dance floor. The program allowed the students and their families to get a glimpse of the type of community gathering popular prior to the invention of technologies such as radio and television.
