ABC Wednesday, H for Hip Hop



A group of children of Cooktown and surroundings attended a hip hop course during their holidays. The man in black with the blue-white cap is the teacher.  He travelled all over Australia to teach children to do something useful and nice. My grandson in the red t-shirt enjoys dancing very much and more young people enjoyed this course. The children practised this several times before the real performance. The quality of these videos is bad but it shows how we saw the boys and girls  doing something quite different than their usual activities on Facebook.

 " Hip hop is a dance style, usually danced to hip hop music, that evolved from the hip hop culture. The first dance associated with hip hop was breakdancing."

 With thanks to Denise Nesbitt, who created ABC.For more  ABC posts click on the logo in the sidebar . This week we are looking for words beginning with H.

Your grandson dances so well, Wil!
When did he get to be so tall? Wasn't it yesterday when they were small?

Anything to get them moving and having fun and --- as you say -- away from the handheld devices. Your grandson is talented!

Your beautiful header shot absolutely made me gasp with joy!

P.S. Yes, you are right. I saw Fiddler on the Roof on TV last week and the song is still in my head.

Your cover photo, did the flowers grow this way, or the mix colours is your arrangement?

Reader Wil said...

Hi Ann what happened to your blog? I can't find it any more. The crocuses in the header photo are the property of the municipality. They just grow along the roads in my village.
Nice, aren't they?

How I wish I could do that! I'd make it down O.K., but not up again, I fear! Looks like a lot of fun for the kids.
