Get in the Mix Middle School Dance
In the same jeans and sneakers they've been wearing all day at school, a group of 200 middle school students gathered at the Garden Street Plaza to dance the styles that alternates between krumping, twerking, and off-balance jerking. On April 23 the City of Visalia hosted its first Get in the Mix Middle School Dance. Video games, contests and free give a ways were just a few of the activities provided for the students. To keep the trend going, a similar back to school dance will be hosted in September.
