Teaching Children to take a Bow
Fifth grade students at P.S. 60 are engaged in an arts-in education program called Dancing Classrooms. This wonderful program builds social awareness, confidence and self-esteem in children through dance. Dancing Classrooms is cultivated through curriculum integration and aligned with the NYS Standards for the Arts and the NYC Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts. A syllabus of ballroom dance is used that nurtures mastery of an art form in a fun learning environment, while fostering respect, team work, confidence, politeness, a sense of joy and accomplishment.
