CRESTVIEW — Jasmin Roser believes that dancing is necessary these days.

“The need for self-expression is crucial now, with the amount of testing going on," the Northwood Arts and Science Academy dance teacher said.

'Never stop dancing'

Teachers helped students with costuming and, in some cases, makeup, but students choreographed the moves and chose the music, Roser said.

Each student contributed a move of his or her own creation or adaptation to the class’ routine, resulting in about 20 moves per class, said Roser, whom the kids call “Miss Jazz."
