Students at James Mowat Elementary showcased their hip-hop moves in a show-and-tell performance for the school and community on Friday (Feb.2).
 
Over the course of the week, students worked with 3RD Street Beat Performing Arts (3SB) to learn the basics of hip-hop dancing. Instructors visted with each grade once a day during the week to help students coordinate unique routines for the performance.
 
First, students had an opportunity to perform what they had learned throughout the week for the audience. This was followed by a series of performances by 3SB dancers, where students could see advanced-level hip-hop routines.
 
"It's a different way for the kids to cover their dance unit and get in their artistic side, and also just to express their emotions," said Harman Baweja, a senior instructor with 3SB.
 
3SB offers a variety of workshops in partnership with schools, which are intended to build creativity and confidence in students, while providing a chance to learn about the origins of hip-hop.
 
This is the second year the program has been offered at James Mowat.
