On the second of April, Year One took part in a dance workshop led by a dance teacher from Dance City. After watching a video of a performance of Hedge, a dance created by professional dancers from Dance City, Year One were led through an especially adapted dance workshop following the same theme of creatures of the hedgerow and specifically Hedgehogs.
Now Year One know a thing or two about hedgehogs, after learning about nocturnal animals while writing non-chronological reports about some of them, but here they could explore how these creatures might move and react to their surroundings through the medium of dance. They explored such movements through a series of set scenarios and then combined movements to create a final routine.
