Creole for Kids and the History of Zydeco!!

November 22, 2017

Black Hawk families reveled in an evening of Zydeco music and dance at Sangamon Auditorium during Terrance Simien’s presentation of Creole for Kids and the History of Zydeco.   Before the show, students engaged in art projects that included making washboards (an defining instrument in Zydeco music), masks and button instruments.  During the show, whether on the converted dance floor or at their seats, students and families could not resist the urge to dance and move to the high-energy music. 

This exciting evening was only possible because of a grant from the Springfield Public Schools Foundation and Sangamon Auditorium.
