Ballroom Blitz

A GREAT PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES

This program is offered to all RES 5th grade students and consists of eight weeks of instruction in ballroom dancing. Students are taught by Miss Tina LaFlam and her staff, with support from RES teachers. 5th graders learn the basic steps in dances such as the tango, waltz, cha-cha and swing, while also practicing proper dance-floor etiquette. The program usually runs between January and March and culminates in "The Ballroom Blitz", a wonderful celebration of all the students have learned, performed in front of families and friends in the high school gym.

“They were confident and happy during their performance. I think they also enjoyed dancing with their parents because it gave them the opportunity to be the one "in the know”. - Laurie Twombly
