On January 8 Noble Street High School dance and gym teach, Mr. Pagan, offered his dance expertise to the Rowe After School Age scholars. Teaching the cultural dances of salsa, merengue and bachata, the scholars learned to move thier hips, wave their hands and step in time to the beat. It was fun for all involved, from scholars and teachers to parents!
