It was a colorful stage tonight. Its wonderful to note that Aerodance is teaching educational concepts and also showcasing such talent through Aerovaganza. Such school events help little kids to connect to their culture. I enjoyed watching colorful costumes. It was informative to learn from the director that every student has to pass certain levels in cultural dancing. Wishing Aerodance continued success.
