On February 28th, the 4th graders at Salem Elementary celebrated a night of dancing with their parents. During fourth grade students are supposed to learn common folk dances and songs of Utah's history. Students worked for  5 weeks to learn folk dances set to authentic music. These included square dances, polka, and line dances. After learning all of the dances they invited a parent partner to come and dance with them after school. They enjoyed their time celebrating their learning with their families.
