3rd and 4th grade classes have been learning an introduction to ballet. Students have learned the 5 differnt positions, demi-pliets, grand pliets, chaines, glissades, and changement de pieds. Here is a picture of the students beginning their ballet warm ups with leg stretches on the bar and practicing 5th position.
Above is a picture of the many stars of the team and the teachers leading the team. Students will be performing for the school, the City of Phoenix at El Dia de los Ninos, and the Starbound Competition. Students are also going to be soon interviewed by the district newspaper for being the first dance team at Herrera to ever go into competition! Congratulations team members!
Emily Cortez and Jose Ledezma
Were recognized by Ms. Sun
for excellence in dance.
“Emily is a Super Star student who is always respectful, does her best, and smiles during dance. What makes her stand out among other students is that she is a fearless performer, willing to be a leader with enthusiasm, even to lead the whole 3rd and 4th grade class to do a step dance piece. She is never afraid to try new moves and always has a great attitude! Emily is a wonderful dance student!”- Ms. Sun“Jose is a Super Star student who is always respectful, does his best, and always smiles during dance. Although he is a quiet student in class, he is never afraid to try new moves and always has a great attitude! I love having Jose as one of my dance students and he greatly deserves this award!”- Ms. Sun
