The dancers began by doing a warm up about Bob’s commute to the moon and some Rocket jumps. They did leaps, feet together jumps, hops and many more. Their jumping improved as the term went on, as did their stamina!
We did some moon walking. They moon walked on a difficult pathway, but got the hang of it. They impressed me even more when we had to change the pathway on the day of the performance because there was staging out in the hall!
Each class made a giant rocket with their bodies and they choreographed Alien Motifs in small groups. They did really well as this is the first time they’d ever choreographed a dance sequence in small groups. Some of the movements were hilarious. We had aliens that couldn’t control their tongues, aliens with many legs and some had ‘random wiggly bits’.
The performance was fantastic. They were very brave, remembered to smile and did really well to remember the movements as, for the first time, they didn’t have an adult performing with them.
As always at Miers Court Primary, I had a fantastic term, but this one was extra special and moving. This was my last before maternity leave. Level Two TRS Teacher and Educating Dance Teacher, Georgia Tedora will be taking over from January. I’m sure she’ll have a wonderful time!
