Performers:

The cultural performance put on by Conant students has always been a hit!  Performances can include (and not limited to) a dance/music item from your native country, a skit with a message, scouting songs or a group of kids performing magic tricks! We already have performances registered for India, China and Hip Pop! It's a great opportunity for kids to participate and explore rhythms of another culture!
