On Wednesday 7th February over a 100 pupils from 10 additional support needs schools participated in the Active Schools Dance Festival, hosted by Oaklands School. It was an amazing morning and fantastic to see such a wide and varied selection of dances on show. It was evident from the performances that everyone had fun not only performing on the day but learning their dance moves over the past few weeks. We were very lucky to be given the opportunity to work with Dance Division who helped choreograph dances for 7 of the Schools. This enabled Oaklands to enter two dance groups this year.
Our Active Group opened the show with a colourful and creative performance to the Justin Timberlake song- Can’t Stop The Feeling. Whilst our Wheelchair Dance group closed the show by performing two of their favourite dances and had the 170 people in the hall bouncing to The Canadian Barn Dance and Tell Me Ma. It was fantastic to see so many of our schools represented and have our friends from Fairview School in Perth join us for the day.
Well Done and Thank you to everyone who helped put on the best Dance Show in town!
