As well as enjoying dance as part of our PE lessons, West Hampstead is a partner school with The Place dance school. We have loved being involved with professional dancers and can't wait for the next series of workshops and our final performance in a London theatre!
The Place 2021-22
Year 3 visited The Place dance school in October, where they had welcome workshops with the dancers and got to observe contemporary and ballet classes with the professional dancers.
In December 2021, Year 3 had the opportunity to watch The Place Christmas Show. https://www.theplace.org.uk/whats-on/luca-silvestrinis-protein-1
In the spring term, the children began their weekly creative sessions with the artists, and workshopped their own year group dance performance. This culminated in their final performance at The Place festival which took place in March 2022.
