Key Stage 1 had the wonderful opportunity of having 'Speight of the Art' in to work with them in conjunction with Birmingham Royal Ballet.
They began the lesson with ballet warm ups based on the music of the Nutcracker. Throughout the session they moved to the music and built up a performance around the wonderful musical accompaniment of the pianist. The children loved pretending to be 'snowflakes' being blown around by the wind and marching 'soldiers' from the Nutcracker.
To end the lesson the children had the opportunity of trying on vintage ballet costumes.
This was truly a magical day and one that we are sure the children will not forget.
