Anyone who grew up in Santaquin and went to the “old” Santaquin Elementary School will remember Dean Peay and his May Day Dance Festival.  All students learned some classic dances and performed them for the May Day celebration.  Orchard Hills Elementary is following in the same footsteps as Mr. Peay with our third annual Fall Dance Festival performed outdoors to accommodate the large crowd.  Each grade level performed for family, grandparents, and many friends.  Dances such as the Chicken Dance, Hokey Pokey, and Oh’ Johnny as well as the Ukrainian Koza and Troika with many others were performed.  We hope to keep this rich tradition alive at Orchard Hills Elementary.
