Multicultural movement and dance is taught by professional dance instructor Tina Malone. Tina has been dancing for 30+ years and teaching dance for 20 years. Her childhood dreams of following her uncle’s footsteps as a Broadway dancer and choreographer led her to launch M. Studio Dance Company in 2010 and after school program “KidzGroove” in 2011. At both Yulupa and Strawberry schools, Tina teaches students to express themselves with dance, enjoy dance as exercise, and appreciate the origins of the dances they perform. Students establish a cultural connection to each grade level’s history curriculum.
Dance lessons take place during the regular school day and all students participate. They will begin in September for all Yulupa students and March for all Strawberry students.
