The Australian Ballet (STEAMDANCE program) has been working with our Year 4 children. The program aimed to provide our cherubs with an unforgettable dance experience and was led by The Australian Ballet’s Dance Education Team. The dance workshops complement key STEAM objectives in the curriculum, such as, choreography to create patterns, identifying what the angle of an arabesque is or how you might balance weight when you lift a partner. During the STEAMDANCE program our children have:
- increased skills through practical dance exercises that encourage individual and cooperative learning
- increased their interest and skills in dance and have had an opportunity to interact with dancers
- increased their knowledge about health and well-being through exercise, body confidence and food choices
The program concluded with a 30-minute performance of Coppélia by the professional dancers.
