STOMP! Dance Workshop
Dance Workshop for Reception and Key Stage 1
This week all of the children have taken part in a dance workshop with a former STOMP performer- Peter Francis.
Children learnt how to copy and repeat music patterns and rhythems using their hands, feet and bodies and they had to make sure their listening skills were good! They also copied STOMP inspired dance routines which involves clapping, twisting, turning and stamping your feet on the ground.
To complete the workshop children created their own dance routines, working in small groups- of which they then performed to each other in their class.
Peter has recently formed his own company called Nebula Artistic who provide dance workshops for schools. Below is further information about him and his company quoted from the company's website:
"From performing with Stomp, the Vienna ballet and Bluemoves, Peter has devised various dance workshops and with the help of other artists Nebula Artistic workshops are now growing in number and variety, spanning the artistic spectrum".
