The History of Dance Workshop

This year, Miss Hobbs shared her love of dance with children from years 2-6. They looked back in history at some of the stranger ideas about dance along with old fashioned rules for dances. They began with a modern Azonto workshop and felt the African vibes as they moved to the 2-step beat. Treading back in time, pupils attempted the different styles of circle dances; from the medieval promenade, to Elizabethan country dance, the Greek Zorba and the Hokey Cokey. Children paired up to rehearse steps and acrobatics for rock and roll and an English Country dance. They were fabulous and danced off their feet!
