Recent ballet assemblies at Highclare Junior School provided children from Reception through to J3 with an opportunity to showcase their wonderful dancing. Through the demonstration of the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus that they have been learning our budding ballerinas delighted the audience.
Children in Reception and J1 showcased exercises and dances from the Primary syllabus and the children in J3 demonstrated exercises and dances from Grade 1, allowing the audience of parents, grandparents, peer groups and teachers see how the syllabus progresses.
All the children have enjoyed learning about posture, line, co-ordination, spacial awareness, and mime. Memorising the exercises, rhythms and musical timings along with working with partners and in groups allowed their overall performance and presentation skills to shine through during an enjoyable assembly.
Congratulations to all of our budding ballerinas!
