Karen Marsden’s Grade 2-3 class and Laura Koochin’s Grade 1-2 class treated an audience to a colorful and hopping performance at the Bonnington on May 21. The performance was anchored by the refrain of “Children everywhere love to dance,” which was inspired by a song from children’s entertainer and songwriter, Bing Jensen. The performance included selections of singing and choreographed dancing with each piece introduced by a student who spoke about the history and context of the music. The evening was concluded with a cleverly modified rendition of the classic silver screen tune, So Long Farwell from the Sound of Music. The concert was a delight to those who attended and warranted an encore demand performance at the Monday morning assembly at the elementary school.
