ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS AT EGS
Bringing enrichment programs to East Gloucester Elementary School is a main focus of the EGS PTO. Our fundraising efforts allow us to provide for the students a couple of all-school programs each year, as well as enrichment programs in each grade level. If you know of any exciting enrichment programs, please let us know! We are always looking for new ideas!
We funded and organized two all school enrichment programs in 2016-2017:
Monday, February 13 (snow day - postponed to early March, date TBD)
Illstyle and Peace Productions
Become Your Dreams: History of Hip Hop Dance
With incredible energy and personalities to match, the dancers of Illstyle & Peace demonstrate that by perseverance and focus, you can reach your highest goals. Tracing hip hop dance styles from the late 70’s through today, this acclaimed ensemble teaches positive messages, including “Think It—Do It—Become It.” Become Your Dreams celebrates the art and movement of hip hop and includes a funky blend of locking, breaking, popping, tap and house dancing, vocal percussions, D.J.ing, and modern and traditional dance forms. An emphasis is placed on the similarity of some hip hop moves to those found in ballet, modern and traditional dance forms. In this show students also get to come on stage and share their own creative dance moves! EGS parents, caregivers and younger siblings are invited to attend the performance. Details will be sent home in February.

World of Rope Jumping (Mark Rothstein)
As a performing pro-athlete, educator, role model and entertainer, Mark presents an inspirational elementary school assembly for all ages. Mark's 45 minute show consists of his hi-energy rope jumping exhibitions, coupled with enjoyable and interactive character building skits. Following Mark's opening assembly, typically an entire grade level attends each workshop. This allows every student the opportunity to enjoy the assembly and a "hands-on" workshop with Mark. The emphasis of these workshops are on jump rope techniques, total fitness, trying your best and fun!
