Current students and recent graduates of Allendale Columbia School contributed to the success of this year’s Summer LEAP program. When the Stop the Violence Dance Alliance, (SVDA) a community partnership between Garth Fagan Dance and the Rochester City School District, visited the Allendale Columbia Summer LEAP Program, sixth graders Sarah Ash and Chinara Dorancy performed and assisted with the master class. Natalie Rogers-Cropper, Garth Fagan Dance School Director and Assistant Rehearsal Director, led students in a series of movements modeled by graduates of SVDA. Both Sarah and Chinara attended Garth Fagan’s Summer Movement Institute this summer.

Recent AC graduates Justin Kennedy (Class of 2011) and Omar Franceschi (Class of 2013) were also on campus working with the students. Justin assisted second grade classroom teachers Stephanie DePaul-Pragel and Melissa Bohrer, providing support and individualized attention to students in the program. Omar photographed all of the program events as well as the day-to-day activities of the students. He also helped raise awareness of the program by contributing to the weekly newsletter and Summer LEAP Facebook and Twitter pages.
