Our children from Year 1 and Year 3 have been fortunate enough to work with visiting members of the Birmingham Royal Ballet in four different dance workshops.
Visiting Dance Artist Jenny Murphy and Pianist Andrew Kristy lead the sessions based on the company's current production of 'Coppelia'. The children found out all about the characters from the ballet and were able to have a go at taking on the role of the clockwork doll, magician and old man. The pupils created their own performances to share at the end of the workshop.
Mrs Duckers, Mrs Slassor, Mrs Charles, Mrs Edwards and Mr Worth all enjoyed participating in the workshops with several members of staff taking the opportunity to try on a beautiful costume from the company's production of 'Sleeping Beauty'!
