Perfect for celebrating Chinese New Year!
Your class will…
Option 1 : We can work four classes across the school day, each class (maximum 35 pupils) working for one hour long session.
Option 2 : If you want to work towards a dance to perform at the end of the day, then we can work with two classes for around two hours each, and end the day with a short sharing session to their peers, or if you wanted parents.

"Today went really well and the students really enjoyed both workshops. The stage combat was particularly engaging for the Year 8 boys (as I'd anticipated!) and the GCSE students learnt so much from his session with stage swords and had a great time - as did I! The Chinese Ribbon Dance was enjoyed by students too and looked effective in performance at the end of the day. Please pass along my thanks again!"
