Five Things Friday: Henry Wilson Afterschool Clubs

Written by Brandi Worley, 22 years old, from Fayetteville, NC serving on The Henry Wilson Elementary School Team co-sponsored by Heinemann.

The Latin Dance club is targeted for our first and second graders. Rhythmic moves and drum inflicted music, course through the room as these youngsters learn about another culture.  This club is a great way for students to showcase their creativity of dance as well as lead and follow others for instruction.


Have you ever seen people make music without using instruments? If not you should definitely look into a form of dance called stepping.  In this after-school club,  students in grades 4th and 5th band together to complete a routine sure to wow any audience.
