"Pass it On" was a project produced and performed by this year's 4-5 Dance Ensemble elective. The creative process and preparation for this project lasted a semester long and the final product was performed on December 10th and 11th at Powell Elementary School. This project consisted of students learning and performing three dances in order to help them, and their audience, understand how positive ideas can spread and change the world. These dancers collaborated with the outreach dance company "Carolina Dance Foundation", a group of middle and high school advanced level dancers. Lasting relationships and mentor-ships were formed as both groups of dancers created, rehearsed, and performed together. As they performed, they learned the power that they have to inspire others to trust in, and nurture, their ideas. The dances were preceded by a video to explain the creative process and introduce the dance.
