Our students loved 'The Evolution of African American Music'. Students were so excited by the energy of the music they could barely stay still, and the best part was that they didn't have to. The performers invited students to come dance and join in the performance on the stage! The thing that impressed me most was that the presenter tailored his show to meet the needs of the two different age groups attending, keeping in very engaging for all ages.
