Third-grade students from Beacon’s elementary schools will perform their annual Calico Ball at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 8, at Beacon High School.
This 28th annual performance is a multicultural celebration of dance and music. Each third-grade class performs a dance routine from a different country and culture. As in past years, the students have been taught by musicians and dancers from the nonprofit Vanaver Caravan, based in New Paltz. This year students will close the program by performing with folksinger and songwriter Tom Chapin.
