Not the Same Old Song and Dance: ESL students add flair to the annual karaoke party!


It’s always fun to see our students show off their many varied talents, and one of the best opportunities for them to do so is our annual karaoke party! This year was especially fun, as we had students perform songs in English, Arabic, Spanish, and Turkish. We had several group performances from students AND teachers, including a moving rendition of “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina.” Even more entertaining than the singing was the dancing! Students learned some of the typical American line dances like the cupid shuffle and the cha cha slide, but by far the best dancing happened when the song “Footloose” came on. A couple of students kind of danced…but one student hopped out of her chair and started MOVING. She kicked her feet and waved her arms just like they did in the original movie and had everyone clapping and cheering for her. It was the most energetic and fun dancing we have ever seen at our karaoke party, and we can’t wait to do it again next year!
