Watch the "Principal Dance Off" between Powell Elementary Principal Chas Miller and Conn Elementary Principal Barry Richburg Thursday, March 27, 2014, at Ligon Middle School in Raleigh. The principals competed for bragging rights while collecting new and gently used book donations for WAKE Up and Read. The community initiative focuses on helping children read on grade level by third-grade. The dance off emerged from online boasting during last month's snow days as parents bragged about their principals' dancing skills. Miller went on to win the competition. The event collected nearly 3000 books. Video by Travis and Leica Long - tong@newsobserver.com
