Beverly Bank sponsored Salem Education Foundation’s Salsa for the Schools event held at the Knights of Columbus in Salem, MA. Partnering with Greg Coles, this enrichment program uses historically accurate and culturally based dance and drum to immerse students in other cultures (or their own in some cases). Students play the rhythms and do the dances of other (or their own) cultures while gaining better awareness of the world, of history and of themselves. Salsa for the Schools is a great perk for teachers because it brings the fun of dance while learning to schools.
Beverly Bank was represented well by Brenda Rondon, a Mortgage Originator Trainee. "Piggie" coin purses and flying discs were a few of the handouts enjoyed by the children attending.
