"I have seen our children grow in confidence - and feel quite comfortable with performing in front of others. They always have fun and are totally engaged - and that's vitally important." Headteacher, Shobdon Primary School
"The children were all engaged throughout the 5 weeks and given the opportunity to take ownership of the dance and use their ideas. Several of the quieter children improved in confidence throughout the programme." KS2 teacher
"It was fantastic to be able to interpret a story into a dance - with our own ideas. It's not just a 'girlie' thing and that's important!" Year 5 pupil
