• The 2015 Dance Festival was held last week at Beaufort High School. The festival included schools from all around Beaufort County. In addition, representatives from The Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities attended and provided instruction in ballet. They also were screening for potential dance/ballet candidates. Students had an opportunity to learn about many styles of dance including Hip-Hop, Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Modern and Yoga. Ms. Angela Bell was the teacher and choreographer for the Hip-Hop class. Marlon Beldon, a local student, has two years of dance experience under his belt and loves to perform. Because of his experience, he felt very comfortable and loved Ms. Bell’s Hip-Hop class. All the students had a great time and they really enjoyed getting to try a wide variety of dances. Eighth grader, Jazmine Rosario said “I loved doing the modern dance and it was a fun challenge to learn the new techniques.”
