Briarcrest Asian Heritage Celebration features Kindergarten Bollywood Dance

Monday, June 01, 2015
Categories: Great Things, Happenings @ TDSB, School Web Stories

Kindergarten students took on a starring role at Briarcrest Junior School's annual Asian Heritage Celebration to close out the month of May. The 4-6 year olds performed a Bollywood Dance. All students participated in a Mindfulness Activity. 

Parent Volunteers Melissa Hansen and Gayle Croswell have seen first hand how children feel about their meditation sessions. “We smile listening to the children reflect upon how they feel after daily morning yoga and meditation sessions.” The two parents say that the young students have grown over the year and now easily synchronize their movements during Sun Salutation, deep breathing and meditation. 

Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Rao has extended this Eastern spirituality by choreographing a yearly Bollywood dance with her students which was performed for the entire school. 

Our Mission
