The students of Oak Hill Middle School and Baldwin High School's Dance classes came together on Friday to celebrate National Dance Day. Established in 2010 by American Dance Movement co-founder, Nigel Lythgoe, and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton. National Dance Day is an annual celebration dedicated to dance, that encourages Americans of all ages to incorporate dance into their lives. By creating a focused day of celebration to show support for dance as a valuable form of exercise and of artistic expression, American Dance Movement aims to educate the public about dance and its many benefits, as well as make dance accessible and inclusive to everyone.
The dance programs at OHMS and BHS are part of the Baldwin County School District's stellar fine arts education program. The school district has made considerable strides over the past six years toward seeing every student at every grade level is exposed to the arts during their time in our schools. Thank you to our dance instructors, Crystal Williams and Savanna Cottle, for a great performance.
