Winthrop Avenue School students have been expanding their dance skills through a six-week dance unit with Circle of Dance instructor Theresa DiLallo. During the unit of study, the students learned Chinese ribbon dance, the Mexican hat dance, African dance moves and American dancing.

Instruction began with gentle stretching and ended with the opportunity to practice personal dance moves.

The goal of the dance unit was to raise cultural awareness of dance throughout the world and to have fun through movement. During instruction, students also honed their memory skills by memorizing dance steps and developing body and personal space awareness.
