Fine Arts Event

On Tuesday, March 18 all students in grades 1-3 at the 8 Federation schools gathered for a Fine Arts Event at St. Ferdinand School.  Beyond Measure Dance Theater presented Africa to America: a dynamic and interactive Springboard performance involving the history, culture and language of three iconic dance styles (West African, Jazz-Swing, and Hip-Hop) that have transitioned from one continent to another. Each classroom teacher received some books and resources to help continue and reinforce this fine arts learning experience with students. Download the Springboard Program Guide below for more details.
