Our school, Convent Glen Catholic, was very fortunate to have Darin Kyle, an amazing member of the Esteem Team, come to present at our school!
Darin’s world championship tap dancing style kept the students excited and engaged. He motivated them with his story of perseverance and hard work. Students had an opportunity to share in his love of dance by participating in grade appropriate dances taught during the day.
This is our second time having Darin to our school and our students and staff alike have enjoyed and benefitted from both presentations. I would highly recommend having him present at your school!
