Dance Workshop: Scrooge

Explore the traditional tale of Dickens' A Christmas Carol

Each class works with our choreographer to create Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghosts of Christmas past, present and future in their own version of Dickens' novel, A Christmas Carol. 

The visit begins with a short assembly creating a link between in the children's minds between narrative and dance, and will then work class by class for the rest of our visit.

The children will develop their individual dance skills and experience working together as a team. Children will develop, select and refine a range of motifs in response to the music and put them together as a performance.

With a mix of festive tunes and a dash of "Bah! Humbug!" this workshop is both a Christmas treat to remember for ever and a fun way to engage with a traditional tale. 

The workshop was great as it enthused all the children about dancing. All of the children enjoyed taking part and had a great time.
