Peggy Lindstrom's first grade class performed several folk dances for other students and parents Friday afternoon at Century School.

Patty Harsha spent the week teaching students several dances, including the Mexican hat dance, the Irish jig, a German clapping dance, the Hawaiian fishing dance and the Virginia reel. Harsha has taught dances to Lindstrom's first graders for several years.
