The performances began with a heartfelt introduction by Paris McLean, MKA Assistant Head of School for Diversity, Inclusion, and Antiracism. The program included many outstanding performances at all grade levels that incorporated a variety of dance genres, including tap, modern, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip-hop, and Bollywood.
A particular highlight of the evening was the fourth, sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade Chinese class performances that were choreographed under the direction of Fangzhou Zhang in honor of the Year of the Rabbit. Students incorporated umbrellas, dragon dance, lion masks, flowing fans, and the powerful sound of a live Chinese drumming performance into their celebration of Chinese culture. Congratulations to all on a beautiful and moving performance!
