SSA Dance Club 2013

Event Date: 
Friday, May 10, 2013 - 1:00pm

 On May 10, 2013 SSA held its annual all school Dance Club - a dance program titled "Kids Helping Kids" that benefits Care and Share of East Lyme. Care and Share is an all-volunteer organization, whose mission is to provide food, as well as financial and emergency support to families in need. SSA students gave up their recess time to learn various dance routines and numbers - all so they could get as many donations as possible to benefit this wonderful cause. The dance numbers were all quite complicated and diverse and it's amazing that the students were able to learn them in such a short period of time. SSA Gym teacher Ada Filippettti donated a lot of her time to get this program together as she invariably does - she even had to miss most of teacher appreciation lunch just so she could oversee the students. We are so thankful for Mrs Filippetti and the Connecticut College students who donate their time to teach our children to dance. This year we also had a parent volunteer who taught the little ones and 6th Grader Ariel Sapozhnikov Irish step dancing! They were beyond adorable and it was a delightful afternoon all-around.
