Back in September of 2007, the EduDance staff had the privilege and honor to welcome the Superintendent of California, Mr. Jack O’Connell to the classrooms in San Diego to view students in the process of learning to ballroom dance. Mr. O’Connell expressed that he was anxious to see, first hand, the students learning to dance in a classroom setting. Mr. O’Connell said that he had heard of the EduDance program and shared that he had not seen a program such as ours in any of the schools throughout the state of California.
Superintendent O’Connell viewed our program at Las Palmas Elementary School and at Lincoln Acres Elementary School, both located in the National School District. Mr. O’Connell was very impressed by the dance abilities of the students, their exhibition of fine social skills and showing exceptional respect for on another during the presentation.Thank you again Superintendent O’Connell, for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit your students classrooms to view an EduDance, Classrooms in Motion presentation.
