Country Dancing has come to Year 4! We have been continuing our very practical work in exploring how different cultures around the world like to celebrate with song and dance. Having already had a session on Bollywood dancing, and with Samba rhythms to come, our recent focus has been on traditional English country dancing.
A large part of this exercise is about being able to remember the moves in the right sequence. There is also a great deal of teamwork involved, with a good understanding required from your country dancing partner. The co-ordination between the boy / girl pairings is key to the success of country dancing.
As you can see from the video above – Year 4 are now established country dancers!
