Welcome to the River School Blog!
Being a private preschool in NYC has its perks. Our NYC location is in one of the major hubs for art and culture in the world. We are very fortunate in this regard and we love to take advantage of all this great city has to offer whenever we can.
When we finished our study of Chinese music and our celebration of the Lunar New Year, we wanted to bring the entire experience to life for the children. What better way to do this than with a traditional Chinese dance! Shally Zhang joined us earlier this month on March 2nd to help us learn and celebrate. Miss. Shally studied at the Beijing Dance Academy and later became a member of the National Ballet of China. Currently she is the Director of the Ying Dance Center in New York. The performance itself was nothing short of spectacular and the parents and children were enthralled the entire time. We are so thankful to Miss. Shally for sharing her talent.
