As part of their artist-in-residence program, the Yard in Chilmark sent Jody Oberfelder to the Edgartown School to inspire the students with dance. The program ran from April 24 through May 5, ending with a final performance for the public on the evening of May 4.

Ms. Oberfelder is a distinguished choreographer from the Lincoln Center Institute. She, along with her troupe, worked with the all the Edgartown students, bringing the excitement of dance to school.
