Students Re-enact ‘Thriller’

Almost two hundred girls from the Laura Jeffrey Academy in St Paul, Minnesota, have re-enacted Michael’s ‘Thriller’ dance, to celebrate the end of their second quarter of school.

The fifth through eighth graders, performed in a ballroom at nearby Macalester College, with their parents watching. Operations Manager Sally Spreeman says, “Students usually mark the end of each quarter with a performance or exhibit of their work.”

The girls learned the dance moves from an online dance instructor. Then, they worked with their art teacher to do the drama component and makeup.

She says:

“While the school focuses on science, technology, engineering and math, Ms Spreeman says the curriculum is ‘art infused,’ which means the kids take an art and choir class every day on top of the academics.”

Laura Jeffrey Academy is a tuition-free, year-round, public charter school at Summit and Snelling Avenue, in St. Paul.
