"Lesole's Dance Project just performed for the students and they were OUTSTANDING!! They were so professional by arriving an hour early. The dance group handled the students very well, especially when they needed to be quieted down. I think the best part was when some of our African students shook Lesole’s hand and thanked him for coming, one even from South Africa. I think these kids rarely see themselves in the school curriculum, and this was an extremely valuable experience for them. Teachers are telling me their students are still talking about it. Everyone at Key was so impressed with this group"

"“This is an amazing group of performers. They are keeping the roots and heritage strong reminding us of the stories, personality, and history dance carries with it through their movements and unique compositions”.

"The students really enjoyed the magnificent performances of Lesole's Dance Project today. In addition to Black History Month, the performances held today fell on PTA Founders Day, February 17th. PTAs are a strong advocate for public education. We appreciate the history and culture represented, great presentation skills and relevant content brought to the students. We would love to have this group perform again!”;
