Seventh- and eighth-graders at Lynbrook South Middle School celebrated the beauty of dance and different cultures with a visit from the Phyllis Rose Dance Company on Jan. 18. The two assemblies, titled “Latin and Hispanic Heritage Celebration,” focused on traditional and contemporary dance, music and folklore from Spain and Latin America. 

The Arts-In-Education program allowed students to not only observe the different performances but also get involved. Students and staff were encouraged to dance along with the performers and even join them on the stage to showcase their newly found skills, such as the Tango. Students clapped along, learned the history of the different dances and cheered on the performers.
