I am a huge fan of folk dance (actually, I just love movement and dance in general!) because it’s such a fun and effective way to engage students while helping them to understand steady beat, form/structure, sequences, musical cues, timing, anticipation, collaboration, spatial awareness, formations, culture, history…the list goes on!
Today, we learnt ‘The Chimes of Dunkirk’ dance in Grade 1. So much fun!
