We began our celebration of Black History Month with a dance party!
We danced to "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Ain't no mountain high enough' by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell, "ABC" by the Jackson Five, "Motown Philly" by Boys II Men, and "Rappers Delight" by the Sugarhill gang (clean version).  We had such a great time!  You can enjoy some of our dance moves in the videos below.💃💃💃💃💃💃💃💃









Have a great weekend!
