Tower Hill was invaded, in the best possible way, on Thursday, January
11th, by The Wild Zappers! This all deaf, all male dance company
performed a show “Let’s Sign and Dance,” combining Jazz, Funk, and
Hip-Hop, for each of the three divisions of the school in celebration
of Dr. Martin Luther King Day.
These artists hail from Washington, DC, have received numerous artistic and humanitarian awards, and have performed at the Kennedy Center, the Apollo Theater in New York, and on national and international tours.
What was truly exciting about these assemblies was the way that the Wild Zappers engaged our community. As one enthusiastic faculty member remarked “You could actually SEE the bridge being built between the deaf and the hearing worlds!”
