23/06/17: Street Dance Workshop

Street Dance

 

Today, we had the opportunity to take part in a master-class to learn some ‘Street Dance’ and about the different countries in the world where street dance originated from. Not surprisingly, we were all impressively good at this genre of dancing as it allowed everyone to ‘freestyle’ and show off some moves we didn’t even realise we had. Firstly, we watched the dance teachers perform a street dance and explain the technicalities of this form of dancing. Then, the children were placed into groups and had their time to choreograph their own street dance and perform to the rest of the year group. Each group was given a country name and the dance teachers awarded the dances with points. It was a whole year group effort to dance for your team to gain the most points. After lots of deliberation, with the competition being extremely tight, the winning team for the best street dance went to ‘Spain’. Amazingly, Spain managed to get to first place by scoring 28.5; however, Brazil were 0.5 of a point behind them with 28 points. Excellent work! It was a great day for everyone and it was lovely to see all the children enjoying themselves and letting the music take them away and show off their dancing skills. Well done, Year 6!
