“[the program] has the ability to motivate even the most difficult students. I have seen students who miss several days of school a week never miss a day that week. [the program] is embraced so warmly that we have added an 'alumni' dance… High school students want to relive the experience they had when they were in middle school.”
“As a social studies teacher, I appreciate that they [students] not only learn the dances, but also a little of the history and geography behind them… By the end of the week, the students are ready to flawlessly perform several dances for about 500 visitors.”
