Class: Dance

Time: 8am-12pm Location: CMS Room 121

Description: Students will have an active experience learning a variety of popular dance steps, so they should come ready to move and ready to jam!

Grading Period 2: Please remember to periodically check your child’s grades on PowerSchool. Reminder: Teachers have between 100 and 160 students, therefore it takes time to grade assignments and post grades. We appreciate your partnership.
