RR did an afternoon gig at a special needs school in Wharton, NJ on Wednesday and the kids came to dance. I brought out my bag of rhythm instruments to expand the experience, so there was lots of dancing, banging on shakers and more. The kids were great and I got an email from one of the moms today.
“Thank you for the wonderful event yesterday at my son’s school – Celebrate the Children. My 9 year old son Robert had an amazing time. He is usually far too self conscious to participate at this type of event but I understand he danced the entire time. He even told me he invented a new dance – “The Tummy”. Thank you again for a great event and for making your music accessible for kids like Robert.”
