Provo Peaks Elementary School

When one of us succeed we all get to celebrate. Today we wanted to let our community know that we have an amazing fifth grader who has advanced to state with his Reflections submission. Hyden choreographed a traditional dance and performed it with his sister. He named his piece Voice to the sky and said, “I wanted to show everyone where my roots are coming from. This dance is a presentation of slavery in Peru that is a mix of Spanish dance and African dance. For me putting the handkerchief to the sky is like shouting thank you for giving me life.” To watch their full performance click on the link below. Here is what he had to say today.

¡Vamos al estatal!

Cuando uno de nosotros tiene éxito, todos podemos celebrar. Hoy queríamos que nuestra comunidad supiera que tenemos un increíble estudiante de quinto grado que ha avanzado al estado con su presentación de Reflexiones. Hyden coreografió un baile tradicional y lo realizó con su hermana. Llamó a su pieza Voz al cielo y dijo: “Quería mostrarles a todos de dónde vienen mis raíces. Esta danza es una presentación de la esclavitud en Perú que es una mezcla de danza española y danza africana. Para mí poner el pañuelo a el cielo es como gritar gracias por darme la vida.” Para ver su actuación completa, haga clic en el siguiente enlace. Esto es lo que tenía que decir hoy.
