Dare to Dance

Last night, family and friends of the Dryden Dance Company delighted in their showcase performance. Students in this club come from all backgrounds and levels of dance experience. They worked together and formed strong friendships during their time in this club. 

Mrs. Pemberton, their dance instructor and choreographer, highlighted the many benefits the dance experience brings to individuals:

  • Self-confidence
  • Cultural appreciation
  • Physical fitness
  • Coordination
  • Brain development
  • Teamwork
  • Positive relationships
  • Creative expression

Dance can also be a medium for story-telling. One of my favorite dances was to the song "Technologic" by Daft Punk. Mrs. Pemberton explained that the story was about how information can spread very quickly through the Internet, and that it is also important to balance "time on tech" with enjoying time away from technology throughout your life.

The Dryden Dance Company's debut was a big success. We are so proud of our dancers' courage, creativity, collaboration and coordination!
