Taking a step back into time gone by, teachers from Dance Kaleidoscope have volunteered to teach some display dances. Today I watched some Year 2s practising a Maypole Dance that they have been learning for weeks. I was amazed at their skill. They are delightful to watch and are eager to show off their abilities - at 11am.
Meanwhile, Year 4/5 are learning some Colonial Dances."Mr Cosgill's Delight" will be performed by the 2 classes and a smaller group will demonstrate their skill with "Zephyrs and Flora". They have picked up the steps and timing remarkably quickly.
Zephyrs and Flora - an English Folk dance will be performed by Year 5s at 2pm
