Burnt Mill Academy / Tue 20th May 2014 at 07:58am
WORLD Dance Day was marked with a packed schedule of events, from flash mobs to West End theatre workshops and ballet lessons.
The event was celebrated around the school, in First Avenue, Harlow, and saw a number of professional visitors work with students.
Zest Dance Company, from London, held a Bollywood dance workshop with Year 7 and 8 students, while the GCSE dance group enjoyed a ballet workshop.
West End performer and choreographer David Bridges visited the school to contribute to the day.
Flash mob dances appeared around the school and a lunchtime breakdance battle meant all students could get involved and have fun.
“The role of performing arts in education is so important from confidence building to performance ability; there are lots of transferable skills for other subjects.”
