5th Grade Students React to Dance Around the World

On May 18th, Joyce Kilmer School in Mahwah, NJ invited Dance Around the World to their school for International Day.  After the assembly performance, some 5th grade students were asked to share their reactions with us.  Wish we could share them all with you but see what a few had to say below.


“The most important this was learning new dances and different cultures.”

“They were lively”

“I think that the most important thing presented in the program was the fact that countries and cultures around the world have different types of dances and uses for it.”

“My favorite parts of the show was when we could dance and when the teachers danced.”

“I like learning cultures from around the world and dance is a big part of culture.”

“My favorite part of the assembly was when kids selected by the teachers got to go on stage. The whole auditorium had a good time.”

“The performers were dancers and they danced many beautiful dances and did an amazing job doing it. They also made it fun for everyone.”

“I learned a Russian dance!”
