The sixth grade students at Liberty Park Middle School recently participated in a flash mob of the once popular dance The Charleston. This activity went along with their study of the 1920s.
During homeroom time, the students gathered in the school gymnasium. When the music began, they got in lines and performed the dance together. The Charleston was introduced in 1923, but became popular when singer Elisabeth Welch sang the song. Jennifer Isbell, the LPMS sixth grade social studies teacher, taught the students the dance and organized the event.
