North Carolina School of the Arts 2016 Summer Dance Program

I had a wonderful experience as an African Dance Accompanist for the North Carolina School of the Arts 2016 Summer Dance Program.

Meeting and collaborating with the other accompanist and dance teachers  was a delight! To be part of a team, to help those young dancers who came from different parts of the state and the country to  learn new skills or perfect the ones they already had was great! To watch them for five weeks go from being reserved and unsure about the dances to flying across the floor and leaping into the air was joyful!  Good stuff UNCSA!!!!
