About:

Our 'Celebration' topic can focus on a single celebration or a combination of several such as Chinese New Year, Diwali, Christmas and Black History Month.

Chinese New Year:

The Chinese dragon dance is suitable for all ages and incorporates a traditional 10m Chinese dragon. The students learn about Chinese New Year and the animals of the zodiac before learning the culturally invigorating 'Dance of the Dragon'.

The session can include a performance for parents.

Black History Month:

This workshop involves every child decorating their own wooden African mask and learning our African Mask Dance.

During part one of this workshop, children learn about African art and how most African masks are thought to portray the faces of spirits and gods. Geometric designs are then selected for the individual masks and they are decorated by the children.

As dance is commonly involved in the use of African masks, part two is dedicated to our specially choreographed African Mask Dance. Children work together as a class to learn and perform this culturally elaborate and enriching dance.

African drumming can also be added to the day. We provide authentic djembes for the children to work in a drum circle creating polyrhythms whist having fun.

Diwali:

With a focus on Indian culture and more specifically the Indian Gods, this workshop is extremely popular during Diwali. Students learn Kathak or Bollywood style choreography during this workshop.

Bollywood is one of the hottest dance styles around. Taking dance moves from some of the most spectacular Indian cinema, it is a fusion of western choreography and Indian tradition.

It’s exciting and easy to learn, which makes it particularly good for infant classes, but can be equally enjoyed by older children. Other styles introduced may include the classical Indian dance based on the Kathak style treasured for its intricacy, elegance and charm.
