Celebrating Diversity through Dance
The week beginning September 12th 2016 we very fortunate to have a dance group in residency at Cypress. The school year started with a a whole school focus on diversity in the performing arts.
The Folk Dance Remixed started the week off with an
amazing show on the school field. The children and staff were completely transfixed as they watched the group perform a show that fused Bollywood, African, Street and various styles of English Folk Dance together.
What was also a fantastic experience for the children is that this was all performed to live music: bass, fiddle, bongos and an amazing human “beat boxer.”
