This morning, CLC enjoyed a September blacktop tradition: our Annual Bruce Springsteen Dance Party! At CLC, we believe strongly that children’s emotional lives benefit profoundly from as much Bruce Springsteen as possible, and each September around the Boss’s birthday, our full school gathers to dance the morning away! It’s a time of community, a time of joy, a time to model for young children how to slow dance soulfully to Drive All Night.
This year, many revelers came dressed as their favorite tiny Bruce, and the Springsteen Dance Party fun lasted long into the school day. Afterwards, one tired Red Roomer noted “this Bruce can really get me dancing, oh yeah!” (hard same, Red Roomer), and another puzzled her grandma for several minutes at pick up by exclaiming “we had a sprinkle dance party!! It’s sprinkle’s birthday!” Check out the fun below, and please join me in wishing Bruce Sprinkle a very CLC birthday.
If you’d like to throw your very own Bruce Springsteen Dance Party at home, here’s a playlist of today’s jams!
