Maes-yr-Haul Primary School Dance

Maes yr Haul Dance Group

Over the past term our Dance Department has been working with Maes-yr-Haul Primary School in Broadlands, Bridgend. Dance Development Worker Elaine Bennett has been working with Year 3 on an Africa theme; after a recent visit of African dancers and musicians to the school the children were inspired to learn more about African movement, and this project is using dance, music and movement to explore different cultures and learn through creativity. The children have had so much fun, excitement and laughter in their sessions – the teacher commented on how surprised she was to see them move so differently in the workshop.

Elaine will be returning to the school in September 2008 to start a new dance project based on environmental issues and working towards our Green Arts Showcase in December.
