Ashley SK Davis and Pieces of a Dream, Inc. P*D2 members visited the students at Shortlidge Academy to provide a fun day of dance. Ms. Keturah and Ms. Jasmine assisted POAD Artistic Director Ashley SK Davis in teaching the basics of a modern dance class including a traditional warm-up and traveling movements, such as grand battments (kicks) and chasses (gallops). Select students in each grade had the opportunity to dance alongside the professionals from the company and receive help from Ms. Davis. After the demo class, Jasmine and Keturah performed P*D2 perennial favorite "Change Gonna Come." The workshop ended with a high-energy dance to Beyoncé's "Move Your Body" that got all of the students and most of the teachers up and dancing! What a great workout! Thank you, Shortlidge :-)
