Sock Hop Dance Class
The term "sock hop" was introduced when dancers were required to remove their hard-soled shoes to protect the varnished gymnasium floor.
These "hops" were iconic of the 1950s, and they're a beloved Canterbury School tradition! Students in Kindergarten Prep through Grade 4 are invited to participate in the Canterbury School Sock Hop Dance Class. This three-week program introduces young dancers to '50s-inspired routines, and it concludes with two special performances on Friday, Jan. 25, 2019:
- 8:15 a.m.: For Canterbury School faculty and Lower School students
- 6 p.m.: For parents and special friends
The Sock Hop Dance Class registration is closed, but please check back in November 2019 for updated offerings and information.
