Participate in the Coalition’s Dance Video Contest for NSCW 2024!

By November 15, 2023 News
Are your students ready to dance? National School Choice Week 2024 is coming up fast on January 21-27, and the Coalition is hosting a dance contest for all of the state’s charter schools. We invite you and your students to showcase your school choice dance moves, using the tutorial and song outlined by National School Choice Week. In addition to bragging rights, the winner will receive an in-class pizza party—at the Coalition’s expense!!—for up to 35 students. We’ll also share the winning video, along with a runner-up video, on our Coalition platforms as part of our National School Choice Week promotion and celebration.

Action steps:

  • Decide to dance!
  • Watch the video tutorial from Indian River Charter School in Florida below on You Tube. The 14-minute video includes step by step instructions with four students and then the full dance, put to music with Indian River students.
  • Recruit dancers at your school and begin to practice.
  • Record your dance video and upload it to our Google Drive Folder by 6 p.m. Friday, December 15. Be sure to review the “Read First” instructions in the folder before uploading your video.
  • Sit back and rest! Meanwhile, Coalition Board members* will serve as judges for video submissions. *Board members at participating schools will recuse themselves as judges.
  • We will announce the winner in our Coalition Connection and Charter Chatter newsletters on Saturday, January 20—right before the launch of National School Choice Week.
