One of the parents in our group is trained in contemporary dance. She recently offered to do a workshop for the children. The littlest children has their session first. Instead of parents helping out, older siblings were invited to work with their younger brothers and sisters.
There were action songs, discussion and games.
Then it was time for the older ones to have their turn. They made shapes in response to each other,
mimicked each other’s movements and worked together in groups to create small vignettes.
It was clear as a spectator that the children all really enjoyed the workshop.
