First ever KS2 Haringey Dance Festival
ON 1ST MARCH HIGHGATE HOSTED 120 PUPILS IN THE FIRST EVER KS2 HARINGEY DANCE FESTIVAL
On Wednesday 1st March the Silver Arts Award students in year 9 and 11 led the first ever KS2 Dance Festival for our local primary schools. The Arts Award is a nationally accredited course in line with the Duke of Edinburgh scheme but with a focus on the Arts.
As part of their coursework the students prepared workshops and then taught modified versions of their dances. They organised for all the schools to perform a piece they had prepared and finally they performed their own compositions for the 120 pupils.
The day was extremely successful and all of our visitors were really inspired to be creative. Friendships were formed and hopefully our students can follow this up by visiting the schools again in the summer term. CMR
