A Dance Class from Urban Strides!

10th December 2020

Last January when the school choir sung in the Young Voices concert at the O2 arena, the children were very impressed with the dancers from Urban Strides who performed as part of the concert. They are a street dance team with some very cool moves! We had booked dance workshops for all the children with an Urban Strider for during May last year, but that had to be postponed due to the national lockdown and school closure. Fortunately we were able to book and arrange for a COVID safe visit on December 10th. Luke, one of the Urban Strides who had performed for us last January, spent the day in school with us and took every class for a socially distanced dance workshop. It was great fun and lots of staff members got involved – Mr. Herd and Mrs. Hayes were particularly proud of their moves!!!

At the end of the day each class got to show their dance routine to the rest of the school on a Zoom show and share session. The day was great fun and provided a much needed boost to everyone’s mental well-being at the end of a long term.
