Sacred Heart School Students in Danville Dance to Thriller

Danville, VA --Princesses, Spider Man, Dracula, and a cowgirl all channeled Michael Jackson Thursday for Halloween.

Sacred Heart School in Danville held a costumed parade and then they preformed a special dance.

First, second, and third graders all danced to Michael Jackson's "Thriller." Dozens of kids participated in the parade.
Music teacher Norm Aquilo says the dance was not just fun, but a learning experience too.
He's been teaching the kids this dance for weeks and says it helps them with rhythm which helps them when they play music.
"They far exceeded my expectations. If you could see how they struggled to follow just the movements for the first week. I'm happy with what they did and it seems like they had a good time," said Aquilo.
