Dance Along Lesson, August 2017:

This month's lesson is all about tools children can use to create their own dances. Using resorces such as music, poetry and of course the ballet steps covered in the Online Ballet Studio, the children were able to create a fantastic dance with real purpose, energy and some great story telling!

Practise this lesson 2 or 3 times per week (or more!)  A new lesson will be published in September 2017.
