BEAUTIFUL WORLD -- dance hula with Miss Marina

Come with us on an interactive story-telling and story-sharing journey with Miss Marina. We will learn a hula together, we will learn what we can do to protect our world together, and we will explore how you can come up with your own hand gestures to make your story dance.
