MILTON, DE.- More than 200 students at Milton Elementary School got the opportunity to hear and dance to music from various cultures across the globe including songs from Peru and Ireland.

Puerto Rican born, and New York raised storyteller Felix Pietri travels to elementary schools to share his culture throughout song and tales.


Pietri incorporates both English and Spanish into his act to help students engage in his performance.

"To get five, six and seven-year-olds to sit for forty-five minutes and stay engaged shows you how powerful it is," said Dr. Beth Conaway, Milton Elementary's Principal.

The performance was also a way to connect students with the growing population of English Learners in the school.

"It's also tied to the curriculum, brings in so much culture is a wonderful opportunity for our students," said Jackie Wager, a teacher at Milton Elementary.


Pietri is also scheduled to perform Friday night, for students and families, at H.O. Brittingham Elementary School.
