Sowchea and David Hoy showcase talent at final show through Expression

David Hoy Elementary School and Sowchea Elementary School students participated in Expression workshops and attended at Sowchea for a final performance showcasing what each group of students had learned.

Expression, the art of storytelling through drumming, rhythm, song and movement activities, was at Sowhcea Elementary School for a sharing of music and dance with David Hoy Elementary School, May 29.

Students from both schools were participants in Expression workshops and attended at Sowchea for a final performance showcasing what each group of students had learned.

Angela Roy, lead singer with Barefoot Caravan, designed the art program and with the assistance from members of the band, teaches students hand drumming, body-vocal percussion and song and movement through the program.

Students had the audience singing and dancing and enjoying jokes during their performances which were accompanied by the band.

Roy said, “The program is delivered with African Djembe drums, an array of world percussion instruments and movement props available for each participant.”
