One of my middle school nieces in a rural township in a remote corner of Minnesota was talking about school and mentioned that Urban Hip Hop Dance was her favorite class. Her mother said that their instructor had insisted they wear Chuck Taylors. I find it comforting that children everywhere are being exposed to things besides wrestling and jump rope in gym classes. I only hope she does not become overconfident and go to a large city to engage in dance battles. I'm guessing that's something they do. I never made it past jump rope class.
