The Episcopal School in North Philadelphia

Students took a trip to Montgomery County Community College to enjoy a performance by the famed Dance Theater of Harlem. The program began with a demonstration of how the dancers work, from small movements at the ballet bar to larger movements like leaps and lifts. The students could see how disciplined practice gave dancers the tools needed to perform beautiful dances that followed. One of the dances was performed to music by J.S. Bach, the composer students are currently learning about in music class. Afterward, students were able to meet and have pictures taken with two of the dancers.
