GET EVEN MORE INSPIRED Here are some additional dances that Center Stage Academy of the Performing Arts used: * For the Revolutionary period, dancers held rifles as a prop and tap danced to a drum cadence. * Students learned the Charleston for the Roaring Twenties. * A lyrical piece was performed to the recorded memories of a local woman who reminisced about World War II and what it was like to see her fianc return home. * Music from The Andrews Sisters helped show how pastimes such as radio and baseball drew the country together after WWII. * To honor current military families, dancers participated in a military-type drill.\nS.A., Bruce Springsteen Ships Ahoy!
