These students have learned and perfected the art of following dances:
Tango, Foxtrot, Rumba, Merengue & Swing
During the competition, they displayed ballroom etiquette and the styles of these dances in order to gather the necessary points and become one of the winners. It was a tough competition as we were competing against schools from Newark, Palisade Park and Jersey City. So it is an honor to announce that Union City won in the following categories:
Thomas A. Edison Elementary
George Washington Elementary J. Pulla, A. Nolasco, A. Vargos, E. Vasquez, J. Delgado, J. Banchon, O. Callejas, M. Morachel, J. Guaman, C. Felix, D. Morejon, G. Molina, J. Cuahuey
