Key Stage 1 pupils from schools across Hyndburn and Ribble Valley took part in a dance festival. There would be 2 events the Ribble valley event held at Bowland high school and was lead by Katie Allcott (partnership dance coach) and Bowland high school leaders. The Hyndburn event would be held at Accrington Academy and again lead by Katie Allcott and Accrington academy leaders.

Schools who attended the event took part in a range of activities which included freezing with a hoop, around the world dances and workshop activities. In freezing with a hoop children were encouraged to pose while holding the hoop or touching the hoop but every group member had to be in contact with the hoop. The workshop activities included ribbon dancing, floating foil, parachute games.

In dances from around the world children would learn dances from India, New Zealand, Greece and Brazil before putting them all together to create dances from around the world.

Thank you to all schools who took part and too Katie Allcott for once again leading on the event. Thank you to Bowland and Accrington Academy for not only hosting the event but for also supplying young leaders who did a fantastic job
