Term 2 Year 7/8 Dance Video

Kia ora everyone!

As well as teaching a wonderful Year 7/8 class, I also have the privilege to organize and run the Year 7/8 dance group. I picked up this activity last year for two terms and this year, we are still going strong with a lot of interest from our talented tamariki.

Each term Year 7/8 boys and girls have the opportunity to sign up for this activity. We practice for one hour each week during our Wednesday Community Impact Projects and CIP Day. I grew up competing in local dance competitions while I was living in Canada and have really missed it, so this is a great way to be active and get moving again!

This term we had a few interruptions to our schedule and students only squeezed in 3 practices before our big performance was upon us. We had some technical difficulties with our music and the sound, but our group showed a ton of Resilience and continued on... as we always say, "the show must go on!"

I look forward to some more dancing this term, maybe adding some more choreography to this routine, and creating a new routine for Term 3. Thank you to everyone who was part of the Year 7/8 dance group this term. You can read about their experiences on their individual learning blogs!

    It is Miss Waho from Gilberthorpe School having a look at what you have been up to. I was pleased to see this dance group post. My class have been doing Dancing Like the Stars and we have a big performance at the end of this term. We are excited and also nervous about it.
    I am glad to see that you have a dance group because I am sure some of my students who will be coming to you next year might be keen to join.
    I am looking forward to seeing how you develop this and share more of what you do.
