On Friday, July 26th 2013, a performing group from Israel visited The Boys and Girls Club of Benton County McKinney Unit. Through dancing and singing, the children were able to get a sense of Israel’s culture. The group performed numerous dance routines and taught traditional dances mixed with American songs while showing videos in between each dance number that told about Israel’s culture. It was very interactive and fun and gave the kids the opportunity to experience a different culture. Each time the group performed a new song, they changed outfits and the costumes were amazing and original. The brightness and colorfulness of the costumes added cheery and visual appeal to the group and their performance. Overall, the children had an amazing time and were able to make lasting memories with their friends while learning about a beautiful and exciting culture. Kori Scott said “I had an amazing time dancing with the group members. It was so much fun and I hope they come back next year.”
