For the first time yesterday we had the pleasure of being invited to dance at the Westwood Midsummer Church fair. With mixed weather but huge amounts of enthusiasm and energy, the children took to the arena at Westwood Manor and put on a fabulous show of set dancing and then later, some traditional maypole dancing. This was followed by a circle dance and it was so lovely to see so many people join in to round off what was, for us, a fun and exciting afternoon.
Once again it was a joy to be a part of such a thriving and vibrant community and I would like to thank everyone involved for inviting us. As a school, we are always looking to forge even stronger links with our local community and yesterday was a wonderful opportunity to meet new people and share in the fun. I would also like to thank our brilliant children from Orchid and Lotus class for their hard work in learning and performing the dances and to thank them and their parents for giving up their Saturday afternoon to come along to the fair.
We managed to capture a video of the children in action performing their single plait:
