Second Dance Workshop for Nursery (PM)
Today the children took part in their second dance workshop. The theme this week was ballet. The children started off with a warm-up including movements and stretches, then practised their skipping and prancing to the music of 'Teddy Bears' Picnic'. Following this, the children were taught specific ballet movements, including a 'plie', 'step and hop', and 'spring points'.
Finally, the children put their new learned skills into practice, stringing a routine together that included galloping, jumping, plies, and spring points.The girls then showed everyone their routine which ended with a curtsy, before the boys demonstrated their routine, finishing off with a bow.
The PM Nursery children take turns skipping around the circle.
