Students in grades 6-8 from Eagle Ridge, Metcalf and Nicollet Middle Schools will be part of a modern dance concert at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 2, in the Mraz Center at Burnsville High School, 600 E. Highway 13.
The students have been part of an eight-week program working with professional teaching artists to create two pieces for the performance.
This event is made possible by the Modern Dance Project, a partnership that includes the Youth Dance Ensemble, the Burnsville Youth Collaborative and Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 Community Education.
Homecoming pep fests are memorable experiences for most high school students, but the pep fest at Burnsville High School last fall may prove life changing for senior Markell Sutton. His musical performance led a staff member to introduce him to THE GARAGE, a music venue and recording studio that partners with the city of Burnsville and Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 to provide learning opportunities for students.
In Markell’s case, what the partnership is providing is an opportunity for self-expression and the chance to pursue his passion and hopeful career pathway.
Always part of the plan, an expansion of Burnsville Youth Collaborative programming to all three Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 middle schools has happened a little ahead of schedule.
Families are invited to find the perfect summer programming fit for them at the Burnsville Community Spring Expo on May 4 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Diamondhead Education Center, 200 W. Burnsville Pkwy, Burnsville.
Christian Kibler, program coordinator of the Burnsville Youth Collaborative, has been selected to serve as a 2015-16 Afterschool Ambassador for the Afterschool Alliance, a national organization.
He is one of just 13 leaders from 12 states to be chosen for the honor this year.
