Members of ComMotion – Community In Motion, a nonprofit group focused on teaching dance and movement, recently visited students at all four Polk County elementary schools.

ComMotion states that its mission is to “make the many physical, social and psychological benefits of dance and movement available to people who might not otherwise get the opportunity due to their ability, age or financial situation.”

The instructor, Andre, and his helper Robin helped local students learn the cha-cha, samba and one other dance from Brazil.
