A dance recital for kids from La Paz Community School, Educarte and Country Day School took place May 27 at Beach Community Church, coordinated by La Paz educator Kerry McClennen and independent dance teacher Laura Herrera. Fifty children from 3 to 15 years old participated in the event, dressed in outfits representative of their particular dances, which included hip-hop, singing and dancing, solo free-style dancing, group dancing and gymnastic dancing to modern pop music. The evening also featured a fundraiser bake sale with lots of goodies on offer. The turnout was great, and at the end of the evening there were a lot of very proud parents.
