Guest artist at Hamagrael delivers lesson in dance, storytelling and music

Hamagrael students and staff ushered in the weekend in the best way possible: with music, dance, stories and lots of smiles thanks to a special guest artist who was part of a schoolwide assembly. 

Jordan Taylor Hill brought his African Diasporic Drum & Dance program to the school on Friday, Mar. 1. Hill has customized a program for elementary-age students so they can experience traditional music and dances from West Africa, Brazil, and The Caribbean. By involving both students and staff, Hill delivered a lesson in history, culture, and customs at Hamagrael that was both fun and educational. 

Thank you to Jordan Taylor Hill for helping Hamagrael kick off the weekend feeling more inspired and informed! Take a look at some of the photo highlights of Jordan Taylor Hill’s visit:students playing drums
