Just Dance Club- “Despite the name, Just Dance Club is just as much for people who aren’t naturally inclined dancers. Improvement over perfection, right?” said junior Rachel Hudson. Hudson runs the new Just Dance Club alongside dance teacher and Middle School Theater Director Stephanie Simmons, who sponsors the club. This is a low commitment club, meeting only on the specific Friday club times and having different choreography each time clubs meet. Even if dancing is not your best suit, it is worth a try because you might just have a change of heart. Hudson said, “The main purpose of the club is to give a platform for people who want to teach choreography and for people who are tired from sitting all day and want to get up and move a little.”
On Aug. 21, all of Wesleyan School gathered in Henderson Stadium to watch the Great American Eclipse.
“The eclipse provide[d] us with a terrific opportunity to witness the beauty of God’s creation and the mystery of His handiwork,” said Headmaster Chris Cleveland.
Science department chair Anna Myrick said, “People were most fascinated by how such a tiny sliver of Sun could still create so much light for us. This is a reminder that the smallest acts of kindness and good deeds can spread the light of God’s Kingdom to so many.”
When asked what experiencing the eclipse would entail, Myrick said, “You will see the Moon cross in front of the Sun. The sky will dim by around 90% and drop about five degrees in temperature. There could be a cool breeze, an ‘eclipse wind.’ Shadows will be altered and the darkness will begin in the western sky. We could see Venus as a star (in the Western sky) and Jupiter (in the Eastern Sky). The darkest areas will be in the northern part of the sky where totality is occurring.” Keep Reading
