We Are Ballet Dancers

Yesterday we had a special treat of working with a member of the Northern Ballet company! It was amazing.

We linked our dancing to their theme of colour. We chose our favourite colours and for the warm up used our bodies to paint our colours around us. Once we gained confidence we had some fantastic moves.

We then learned some different technical vocabulary and positions such as first position and pliƩ.

Then, we used our new knowledge and incorporated some travelling into our moves by thinking of different colours and how they make us feel. We moved in the way to represent our feelings.

Finally, we went into a circle to mix our colours in the middle by moving in interesting ways and then ending up in a group in the middle where we had to make sure we were touching another colour.

It was such an amazing session and we all want to be professional ballet dancers now!
