Mighty 4 Arts
Submitted By Arthur Barinque
On Friday April 19th, 4th and 5th grade students at Altamont Creek Elementary School in Livermore engaged in an interactive cultural dance experience. A Union City based non-profit organization, Mighty 4 Arts Foundation, which teaches Hip Hop cultural art forms, taught beginning break-dancing assembly workshops that included a beat box rhythm test, stretching exercises, techniques in break-dancing, and a "cypher" dance circle. Children utilized math and science to learn music, dance, and culture.
The project was an alternative to Altamont Creek's physical education class. This Mighty 4 Arts Foundation outreach project was graciously funded by the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center's Education Outreach Fund.
