In my opinion, this was the best assembly we have ever had. The Native Pride Dancer had all the qualities of the perfect assembly: education, entertainment, and student involvement. Thanks again!
The performer was able to really focus on our core content and used terminology our students are tested over. He was able to do all of this while educating and entertaining staff and students alike well beyond our expectations. Thank you so much!
Our students had such an awesome time. Not only did they learn more about Native American culture, but they had a lot of fun while doing it. We can’t wait to have you back!
