Kindergarten students from Douglass Academy have a great time learning ballet dancing as part of Shakespeare Day. Douglass Academy teaches students a classical curriculum including Shakespeare, Homer, and Latin. Shakespeare Day also consists of contra dancing, a puppet show of Romeo & Juliet, and a medieval sword technique demonstration.
Nikki Chaney, Headmaster of Douglass Academy, commented, “It’s amazing to see students connect with works of literature that are centuries old. Our students love learning history and gaining a larger view of the world”.
