MLA 2012 Winter Performance Expo

On January 25 and 26, the Melrose Leadership Academy community assembled for the Winter performance expo in Oakland, California. Students danced, sang and played instruments. Kindergarten students through 8th graders danced traditional Mexican dances, such as ballet folklorico. Parents and educators helped students prepare.

Melrose Leadership Academy held their Winter 2012 Performance Epxo on January 25-26, 2012.

Before the expo, students dressed for the performance. Once dressed, all the students shared the same “backstage” area. The bigger kids teach the smaller children. The adults teach the children how to prepare and learn. Meanwhile, the children remind us why we invest our time helping them grow.

Because the school continues growing, the organizers added a second January show. Photos from the top are from day one (and here). Photos just above are from the second day.
