'Dance yourself Disney!!'

Our annual Sport Partnership KS 1 dance festival has grown so popular that this year we have organised 5 different ones! Monday 9th and Wednesday 11th February kicked off the ‘Disney Classics’ Festivals at Ashton Park School.

480 Year 1 and 2 pupils from Luckwell, Compass Point, Ashton Vale, Ashton Gate, Southville, Birdwell, Christchurch, Holycross, St Mary Redcliffe and Hotwells all delighted us with their dances from Mary Poppins, Under the Sea, Pirates of the Caribbean, Pinocchio, Aristocats, A Knight in Camelot, Dumbo, and The Lion King. The children had made very special efforts with their costumes and learning the dances to perform them to such a high standard.

Even the parents and adult helpers joined in enthusiastically with the warming up and cooling down dance showing off their moves! The year 7 leadership team were on hand to assist and put into practise their leadership skills they have just learnt by attending the Leadership Academy training.

As part of our programme we visit each school and work alongside the class teacher for one session, giving them a dance topic to work on with their class. We then leave them to it until they are ready to perform. There has been a very noticeable increase in the standard of work being produced this year which is all credit to the teachers! Looking forward to the next 3 festivals which we will hold at St Bernadette, Merchants Academy and Bedminster Down. I am sure we will be wowed by more enthusiastic youngsters.
