Julie Appleton-Seymours Dancers visited.

video

Edit please excuse my error on the video (trying to do to many jobs at once when I made it). In the title I meant dances, not dancers, though we did see lots of them too.

Here's some video highlights of over an hour and a half of dancing.

Julie Appleton-Seymour brought in around 20 of her dancers including a number of our past and current pupils. Lots of people came to watch the show including Grandparents, some even over from England.

Some of our children stayed glued to their seats (or up and dancing), watching and joining the dancers for the whole show, while others took the oppertunity to go outside to play, often coming back in to see more.

All of them got some thing special from the show.

One little girl, on a Kindergarten visit with mum, joined in with full energy, getting commended by Julie for her efforts.

At one point Julie noticed Emily and Gina clapping in time and after the dance got them to stand up and she remaked how wonderful it was that they were clapping in time. After that much more clapping followed which Julie further supported and encouraged.

She showed us some simple steps, and talked to us about how they can help children develop.

Afterwards I was amazed at who was dancing, many who hadn't been willing to get up with all the people there where dancing away "look at me!"
