During this one day workshop, students and teachers will have the opportunity to work with other schools and further develop their knowledge and understanding of composition and dance technique.
Teachers will be given specific professional development opportunities that they can take back to the classroom with them and further this experience with their students.
Students will look at new forms of physical expression, getting in tune with their musicality and perfecting their dance moves.
