Ten years ago, Linda Chesnutt created a program – AV Dancing Feet Youth Ballroom Dance – to introduce Antelope Valley students to the world of dance and the social etiquette that goes with it.
In October of 2014, Margaret Wassner introduced this program to the learners in grades 5-8 at iLEAD Lancaster.
The dancers work with Margaret for months to learn dances such as the merengue, salsa, tango, East Coast swing, and waltz. All their hard work pays off when they participate in a valley-wide competition at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds called “An Elementary Elegance Event”
Margaret estimates that over 130 iLEAD Lancaster learners have participated is this fantastic program. And we know they will continue to enjoy dancing throughout their lives.
Margaret and Linda, we applaud you for your leadership in the arts.
