Sewickley Academy students learn from master dancer

Sunday, March 2, 2014, 8:03 p.m.
 

For dance students at Sewickley Academy, it was a chance to learn from a master.

Aguinaldo De Oliveira Lopes, a member of the Compagnie Kafig professional dance company, led students in a class that combined modern dance styles such as hip hop with classical Latin styles such as the samba.

Rio de Janiero-born Anjo, as he is known professionally, worked with 15 of Sewickley Academy dance teacher Joe Jackson's students. Wearing his Converse sneakers, the Brazilian dancer patiently taught the youths a few acrobatic moves — and soon the class leapt about the polished floors of the school's dance studio.

Jackson was thrilled at the chance for his students to learn from Anjo.

“Anytime my kids can study with a professional dancer — to watch, learn, and then perform the new moves — is an awesome opportunity,” said Jackson.
