Students were doing the dance sensation that was sweeping the nation in the 1950s for an audience at Medical Center of Trinity.
More than 50 students from Dayspring Academy put on a show at the hospital on S.R. 54.
They got into the spirit of the Fabulous Fifties, as the girls put on poodle skirts and the boys donned leather jackets that were deemed cool more than half a century ago.
"They love to perform," Kelly Covic, arts director for Dayspring Academy, said about her pupils in grades six through eight. The students currently take musical theater and dance class.
Other students entertained at La Casa Grande, a retirement community in New Port Richey, and the Angelus, a home for the severely handicapped in Hudson, Covic said.
"At the Hop" opened the mini-concert of three dance numbers at the hospital. The performances are part of the school's mission to support community spirit, Covic said.
After the show, Medical Center of Trinity marketing director Mary Sommise and other members of the medical center staff treated the students to refreshments.
