The KS2 children auditioned in front of Mrs. Howarth and Mrs. Browne to secure their place in our school Dance Troope 2019. Fifteen children have been chosen to represent our school in the St Anne’s Cup Dance Competition on Tuesday 19th March 2019 and the Rochdale Borough School Games Partnership Dance Festival on Thursday 28th March 2019. They are busy learning a 'Rock and Roll' dance routine and Mrs. Willman is sourcing some fabulous costumes for them too. Thank you to the PTFA who have paid towards the cost of the costumes.
Dancing is a great form of exercise, and a love of dance helps children to stay active as they grow into adults. Dance classes can increase children's flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina. As well as promoting overall health, enhanced development in these areas can help kids with sports and other activities at school and beyond.
When children experience the joy of dancing, he or she learns about expressing themselves in a way that’s beneficial to their physical and mental health. This expression provides a structured outlet for a healthy physical and emotional release that helps develop emotional maturity. By giving children the freedom to channel their emotions and energies in a safe environment,their self-esteem and confidence will increase significantly.
