P.S./I.S. 217 (Roosevelt Island School) Colombian Dancing Performance at Turtle Bay Music School

On June 5th Pre-k through fifth-grade students performed at a concert concluding the 8-week Colombian Dance Residency with Turtle Bay Music School and New York’s premier Colombian ensemble, Folklore Urbano. The Colombian Dance Residency is a free after-school program open to all 217 students.

At the final performance students were accompanied onstage by some of New York City’s most talented musicians.

For the past six years students have had an amazing opportunity to learn about Colombian music and dancing through this program. We appreciate Council Member Ben Kallos's support which allows us to continue this wonderful program every year!
