Shari Polis, Foothill mother and professional dancer, donated countless hours of her time to provide every Foothill student two dance classes during regular P.E. this year.
Shari taught the choreography to two hip hop dances (among which, ‘My Shot’ from Hamilton) and performed the dances for their teacher. The students also had the chance to show off their free-style moves in a circle.
This program was a smashing hit with our students and we are honored that Shari shared her talent and passion for dance with our school.
Shari studied at the University of Michigan and then headed to New York where she starred in off Broadway shows, ran a children’s dance company for 12 years, and started a Performing Arts program at a Brooklyn school which produced 17 full stage musicals. You can see Shari dancing on tv now in national Honey Nuts Cheerios Commercial #behearthealthy. She is currently teaching at the Boulder JCC and around town.
