Dance Around the World

MAY 2, 2022 -- Grades 7/8 students at Harbour Landing School have been working on a cross-curricular Dance Around the World unit, through which they explored culture through dance. Students learned several dances from around the world in their Physical Education and Arts Education classes.

A big thank you to teachers Inderjit Kamboz and Brianne McFetridge for supporting learners and sharing their knowledge of dance with students. The culminating project was choreographing performances in groups, which resulted in dances from India, Africa, the Philippines, New Zealand, Mexico, and the Middle East, as well as Métis jigging. Staff are very proud of all the students and the effort and dedication they put into their cultural dances.
