Greetings, one and all, from Fifth Class, Room 13. We have been enjoying getting active and creating dance moves lately. We are delighted with our Zumba classes and really enjoyed Skip Hop also. Recently as part of integrated Music, Drama and PE lessons we responded through expressive movement to "Ritual Fire Dance" by Manuel de Falla.
We brought some dramatic effects to enhance our dances. We also performed these dances as part of our Hallowe'en celebrations, but with our costumes on, we were TOO Scary to post on the website :-) Whilst learning about the Maoris of New Zealand, we tried our hands at the HAKA. It was great fun getting the words and actions to synchronise! We tried our best to bring some warrior attitude! This Dance Troupe is currently preparing "The 12 Days of Christmas", a dastardly, dazzling musical, so you will soon be invited to Room 13 to see the fruits of our labour! Until then, keep chancin' the dancin' !!
