Year 7 Musical Theatre Workshops
Fourteen Year 7 talented dance students were selected by their dance teachers to attend a Musical Theatre Dance Session for two consecutive weeks after school. The lively session was led by two students from De Montfort University who are both training to become secondary teachers next year.
Students participated in fun warm up activities to get them into the 60’s style and characters from the musical. They were then taught an amazing routine to the ‘Hairspray’ favourite ‘You can’t stop the beat’ which students really enjoyed.
Scarlett reflected on the session, ‘I really enjoy the warm up as everyone is included’ and Millie said, ‘ I love dancing in different styles… I love all of it!’
The session was an excellent opportunity to challenge and enrich students’ experience. We hope to invite the teachers back soon for more extra sessions. Well done to all involved!
