teaching the lyrics and dance moves to their show. This took about 90
minutes and included time for background information about
At 9:30, grade school students arrived. After a few ice-breaker games, the show was underway.
Everyone had a great time belting out songs like "That's What I Like About You." It was fun to watch the CARE members dance. There was also a serious message that was reflected in some of the songs. One of the founding members
shared a song written for friends who
have been affected by substance abuse.
Later, participants broke into groups and performed "good-choice" skits. an example is one student plays the bully, offering drugs to other students. The good students have to decide what to say and how to get out of the situation.
Rock-n-Prevention sent a good message to the students: Stay drug and alcohol free and have high self-esteem.
