Primary Schools Festival of Dance

Primary Schools Festival of Dance

Pupils in Years 2 and 5 recently joined Whitstone School for a Primary Dance Festival.

The event saw over one hundred pupils from local primary schools working with Year 9 and 10 students to create a series of dances during an all day workshop.

Once choreographed and perfected the pupils took part in a dress rehearsal before taking to the stage to perform in front of their friends and family.

Emily, Year 9, said, “I worked with Year 2s from St Aldhelm’s and it was brilliant to see the pupils perform a dance that I had taught them; it made me feel proud. It was extra special because so many parents and family members had come to watch.”

A huge congratulations to all those involved in such a successful day of collaboration and dance.

A DVD copy of the Primary Dance Festival has been sent to each of the participating schools.
