Dance Mogul Exclusive Interview…
Dance Mogul Magazine Co-Founder Anthony Harris has been making rounds throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and other states since the year started. As students settled with the idea of being back to school since covid, they were ready for something new. Schools are looking for new ways to inspire the students to welcome them back. Highland Park school Principle Caitlin Brady contacted Anthony and invited him to share in their Black History Month celebration. The evening began with an outstanding performance by the school choir and the school band, followed by Anthony and a team of dancers led by WIZ, who danced to some of the latest dance songs out today. The students were asked to come up on stage to show off some of their dance skills for cash prizes, and of course, they did not hesitate. Anthony also shared information about some great black leaders that are not mentioned as often as they should be. Overall the experience was great for all in attendance; after the event, Anthony and the dancer got a chance to meet Paula Bloom, Executive Director of the Division of Field Services, who congratulated them on their performance.
