On Friday 6th March, 28 pupils ranging from years 7-11 took part in a two hour gifted and talented dance workshop. The workshop was led by a professional dancer from Dance East, who took students through a vigorous, fast paced session of warm up, stretch techniques, contemporary dance moves and routines. Both the workshop leader and myself were extremely impressed by the students’ behaviour and attitude which was excellent, and we could see that they had a thoroughly enjoyable morning learning lots of new pieces of dance. Some of the students now have the opportunity to attend further workshops in Colchester or Ipswich, and may go on to audition for the training scheme which Dance East have available to students from across the region.
Well done to all the girls who took part, and hopefully next year we will see some boys too!
