East English Village dance teacher Rosalind Leath, who is also the Michigan Delegate for National Dance Week hosted a Dance Awareness Zumba class for staff, parents, students and the community on April 28. “The purpose of Dance Awareness week is to expose and introduce as many people as possible to the enjoyment and benefits of dance through the promotion of dance in schools,” Leath said. Zumba is a Latin-inspired cardio dance workout that uses music and choreographed steps to form a fitness party atmosphere.

Movement has merit but affects learning

Many Detroit Public Schools teachers participating in sick-outs are not actually sick. Large groups of teachers are calling in “sick” to push for upgrades in schools because they cannot strike under state law. Teachers across the district (some students as well) are using this as a way of getting their points across, whether it’s striking outside of local schools or boycotting in front of Cobo Center while President Barack Obama toured the Detroit auto show.
