Dance In Schools

“For the past several years we have enjoyed Ms. Denenfeld coming to our school to provide our students with a hands-on experience in dance; a major part of the Arts and Humanities curriculum.  She has great rapport with all students while maintaining a positive learning environment. Our students learn about history, different cultures, movement, rhythm, and cooperation among themselves without even realizing it! Thank you Ms. Denenfeld for all that you do!”
