When Anrauer was asked how he knew all the different styles of dance he said that he been to a lot of weddings, birthday parties and barmitzfas.

The 38-year-old principal isn't worried that his students might not take him seriously. He says they know he cares about their future.

"If the students have a connection with you and they know you take their education seriously and you care about them as people, grades and their behavior and social development . I think if you have that respect you can pretty much act as silly as you want," said Anrauer.
