RIDGEFIELD — Union Ridge Elementary School students held a schoolwide virtual dance party to kick off their winter break. Typically, the school PTO holds several events throughout the year, including dances, but all were canceled due to COVID-19. “We thought, ‘How can we re-create a dance in a virtual way?’ We reached out to our DJ, Craig Brown at High Fidelity,” said PTO co-president Perla Hauge. Prior to the event, the PTO made dance party packs (bags with sunglasses, a glow stick and a snack) for each student. Families picked up the dance party packs from a drive-thru display outside the school. Almost 200 students danced and even participated in a virtual scavenger hunt. “The dance party was a big hit,” Hauge said. “Teachers, kids, parents, dogs, everyone had a blast. My second-grader was especially tickled by learning the lawnmower and the shopping cart dance moves. He’s been doing them all morning.”
