After more than a week of rehearsal with the National Dance Institute, Edison fourth and fifth-graders had laugh-out-loud fun on Wednesday when they got to perform dance routines in front of their classmates and parents at Tydings Auditorium.

After a week, two snow delay days and one performance day; the students of Edison still worked hard, did their best, were fit, and never gave up.   Edison Elementary's 4th Grade and 5th Grade students impressed their teachers, principal... and if Ringo or Paul ever watch the video, we think they would be inspired.

 

 

It is poetic justice that a musical group that sang about a changing world…changed the world. The Beatles taught the American culture to “…take a sad song and make it better” and reminded people how to overcome dark days “…when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on us” and sang the undeniable truth that “…life goes on.”

We live in a post-modern world created from the imagination and music of legends like John, Paul, Ringo and George. Whether you bought their vinyl album of Sergeant Pepper or listen to Blackbird on Coffeehouse XM Radio today, the FAB 4’s words have painted permanent strokes on the collective consciousness of our culture. America, since the European Invasion of the 1960’s, has seen advancements in civil rights and education of students with special needs. In retrospect, the Beatles taught us just how powerful the artist and poet is in our society. They became the voice for everyone and left a lasting legacy.

Even though the last time The Beatles sang together was long before these students were born, it is their collaboration that continues to make its mark on history. And it was this history Alyx and Maki taught their students every day in dance practice… along with a 1000 other things like working on endurance, energy, excellence and how to respectfully say goodbye to Maki in Japanese. Most importantly they taught the students to “come together” “with a little help from their friends” and build a complete performance in front of hundreds of students, parents and fans. All the while, creating something bigger than themselves.
