If Seabreeze High School students can dance for dance's sake in a decked out party hall during homecoming week, why in the world can't elementary schoolers, too?

That's what Project ROMP Fundraising Coordinator Marianne Burley wanted to know. And so, soon after, she got to work painting cardboard castle walls and making trees out of brown construction paper and green balloons.

The culmination was Project ROMP's "A Magical Knight" dance party Friday night, at the Nova Community Center. The funds raised would benefit the group's efforts to renovate the Magic Forest Rainbow Park playground, off Nova Road.
