Let’s Dance!

Miss Pimblott, from the Aim Sky High dance company, has been working with the children every Monday as part of the curriculum.  This week we invited parents to come and watch what the children have been up to!

"We have been working with the children from Pre-Prep up to Year 6 on street dance since September. After November we began to put together a different dance routine for each class. We used various techniques to create the dance routine and this includes getting plenty of input from the children, allowing them to be creative and give suggestions to show off their own individual dance moves. 

We also worked on how to give movement different textures (strong/soft/sharp and many more), because it’s important to see that dance is more than moving our bodies; it’s also a way to express different stories without having to use our voice. 

The older year groups have had the chance to work in smaller groups to develop their own routine and skills.  This is a great team building exercise and gives each child a chance to discover their own creative ability in this particular art. 

We have discovered some amazing street dance talent and potential dance stars of the future at Forest Park."
