Woodbury Middle School students were dancing just like they didn’t care Feb. 8 at the school’s first “Dance for Fun.”
The program, started by club adviser Elizabeth Johnson, brings WMS students together after school, every other Wednesday, to learn a dance routine to some popular songs.
“I like dancing and like sharing dance with kids so I thought I would try it out,” Johnson said.
During the first practice, students learned a choreographed routine to Katy Perry’s song “E.T.”
Other upcoming dances will include “Fake I.D.” from the “Footloose” soundtrack. The students will even bring in a few routines of their own.
“Sometimes I’ll teach them, sometimes they’ll teach each other,” Johnson said. “Some of the girls have ideas that they want to share.”
So far Johnson has four practices scheduled, but she said if “Dance for Fun” proves to be popular, she will add more.
“I just love dancing,” she said. “It gave me a reason to be involved with school rather than just being at school.
“It was very motivating for me, so I thought I’d share the wealth.”
