  As with most young generations, music and dancing was a very important part of our culture. In this section we have included some links that demonstrate the music and dancing we enjoyed and the popular artists that brought us that music. For our visitors we hope this will give you an insight into our culture and how we enjoyed ourselves, for our classmates we hope it provides a nostalgic trip back to those good 'ol days. So, get outa your chair, move back the furniture and let the good times roll!
