Preschool through First Grade Dancers celebrated Red Ribbon Week by dancing our own say not to bullying dance inspired by Zara Leoloa's Just Say No to Bully video. We talked about how telling secrets and excluding others is hurtful.
Second grade through eighth grade had exposure to modern dance by watching The University of Southern Florida's College of the Arts bully dance. We had our first whole-class conversations connecting the video to our own feelings and actions. I continue to be impressed by the depth and kindness of my Dancing Crusaders.
