Washington, CT - On March 26, 2009, the students and faculty of Devereux Glenholme were captivated by Sounds of Afrika, an Afrikan drum and dance troupe, with a history lesson that bellowed through the halls of their schoolhouse. In an eclectic fashion, the troupe delivered details of the slave trade, ancestry and the importance of the storyteller art form by binding their message with the emotions of drumming and the visual images of motion and dance. The Arts is an integral and powerful part of our lives and at Glenholme, it is essential to student development. The Glenholme Arts program is designed to assist students in reaching their full potential and the continuous effort to include the arts in education provides unique, interesting and effective means of learning.
