Multicultural Folk Dance Residency

Third grade students at Mount Prospect Elementary School in Bernard’s Township traveled the globe with Arts Council teaching artist Joanna Pang Atkins  learning dances from Russia, Mexico, Kenya, Japan and Scotland. Their dances were presented to their classmates during an afternoon school performance and then again for the entire school community and parents as part of an International Day Fair celebrating the diverse culture of the school.”School Principal Judith Slutzky said she had always wanted to hold an international day, but last year launched the program the help of dedicated parent volunteers Riham Elkashef, Achint Kaur, Helen Woo and Denise Zangara.” Read more about this residency in this article from the Basking Ridge Patch
