Our first Hope Hoedown was a tremendous success. Over 100 people joined us on a wet, cold evening. Students from preschool through 5th grade demonstrated their square dancing skills, including the ability to be kind to a partner, to listen to directions, to demonstrate flexibility, and to work as a team! We then welcomed friends and families to the dance floor. With our students serving as mentors, along with encouragement from teachers and therapists, the entire group transformed quickly into a mass of organized motion!
