Scholars'Ballroom Dancing Team Earns Bronze
The Scholars' Academy ballroom dancing team "tangoed" their way to a bronze medal during the annual Regional Ballroom Dance Competition on April 8. This year, two eighth grade classes received ballroom dancing lessons. They were taught the rumba, tango, merengue, salsa and swing dances. They learned the steps and also studied the history of the dances. Ballroom dancing teaches poise, grace and respect for others. "Ballroom dancing really brought our classes closer together," said eighth grader, Nikki Kerr. "It gave us a lot of respect for each other as well."
