In January 2021 we set a challenge to all pupils to choreograph a dance to a song of their choosing. This could be any kind of music and the dance could use any style, also with thoughts on costume and positioning. This wasn't so much to focus on the competition, but more a chance to be creative, and gave each child a chance to express themselves through dance.
We got some wonderful entries, thank you all for sending me your videos! It was hard to chose the winners, but a few stood out to me and have listed below - congratulations to the winners!
