Throughout the county, many schools have scaled back physical education classes and cut down on recess time. But kids need a chance to release their energy and express themselves through movement. That's what Chanice Holmes believes. She's a dance instructor at ARISE Academy and teaches elementary school students to communicate and channel stress through dance.

Chanice Holmes was placed at ARISE Academy tbrough Up2Us Sports, a national sports-based youth development program, and the local nonprofit Dancing Grounds.

Support for Voices of Educators and education reporting on WWNO comes from Entergy Corporation.
