On Friday the 10th of March, a group of 18 children from Year 5 and 6 attended a Dance Festival at The Space in Norwich. The children performed with 8 other schools to the theme of ‘A Moment in Time’. The children dressed up as vicious Vikings as Year 5 had been learning about them in history. They were given time to practise their dance on stage with lighting and music. Prior to the show, the children had been rehearsing at school since October and were really excited to participate.
They were lucky enough to watch Legacy (an all-boys dance troop) perform. They were amazed and inspired by the incredible performance. Some felt so driven that they wanted to continue dancing and potentially join a club outside of school.
Later that day, the children wore scary face paint and took part in two performances in front of their friends and family. For some children, this was a completely new experience and Mrs Parsons and Miss Morgans were so proud of them for having the courage to stand up on stage into front of hundreds of people. The adults were really impressed by their non-stop enthusiasm, determination to succeed, excellent teamwork and support they showed their peers.
It was a fantastic day enjoyed by the all children and adults alike!
Well done everyone!
