Great British Dance Off Competition - 2017/18
The dance team were again successful this year in qualifying for this years Regional Competition. Since September they have been preparing and perfecting a new dance routine for this competition. The team represented the school in Nottingham proudly showcasing their routine against other Primary Schools. They produced a fantastic performance once again. The theme was Toy Story, the costumes sure were amazing!
As part of a initiative to get children more active in the classroom Miss Edwards and the dance leaders have choreographed and created dance tutorials that will coincide with the topics being covered. These tutorials can be watched and practiced in the classroom whenever! The dance leaders give up most dinner times to help and choreograph routines for the active curriculum in school.
Well done dance leaders!
