Montgomery School students spent three days in performing arts workshops with The Young Americans group in November. This was be the third visit from the group, who trains the students in performance techniques. The visit culminated in a school-wide performance by third through eighth grade students.
The Young Americans group travels the world running workshops and trainings like the one which took place at Montgomery School. The Young Americans were founded in 1962 by Milton C. Anderson, and their mission is, “dedicated to the promotion of understanding and goodwill among people throughout the world through music, dance, performance, academic education and cultural interaction among student members and their audiences.”
The visit was the result of generous parents who donated funding for the group during the 2014 Annual Benefit as well as a generous donation from the MSCA. Thanks to all these contributors; Montgomery students had the experience of a lifetime as they sang and danced for the community!
