Several children had a chance to work on their rhythm at a recent program.
Nirathi Rao from Rythmaya Dance led the 40-minute program, which focused on Bollywood, folk and classical Indian dancing, according to a release from the county.
It was held at Chinn Park Regional Library in Woodbridge.
Participants enjoyed the program, according to Chinn Park Regional Library Youth Services Supervisor Jane Drabkin.
“I think they had a wonderful time. They loved the dancing and all the movement,” Drabkin said in a release. “They learned a lot, and they weren’t just sitting still.”
The program was also eye-opening for children.
“It expands their horizons,” Drabkin said. “It gives them a chance to learn through their senses, as well. They’re getting a lot of information they wouldn’t normally get.”
Rao will also be teaching about dancing at two other Prince William County libraries on Monday.
Children who are 3 and older can participate in her program at Montclair Community Library, which will begin at 2 p.m. The program will also be offered to kids 11 and older at the Haymarket Gainesville Community Library at 6 p.m.
