Hip hop holiday
- Published: December 19, 2013
Saturday afternoon’s holiday fest at the Glen’s Vernet Ecological Center included a stage full of hip-hop dancers, above. While the performances continued, children and parents lined up for a chance to visit with Santa, right (who some say looks remarkably like Steve Haws, marking his 46th year as the bearded man), including local resident Elijah Moon. After their urban mix, the students gathered on stage to introduce themselves and explain what they liked about hip-hop. Below, from left, Loren George,
Kenji Housh, Eleanor Claggett and Claire Barlaje, all gave an air of confidence and competence at the mic. At bottom, Claire Lewis and Loren George perform one last dance before joining the dozens of other children for arts and crafts.
