Streetdance at Oldfield Brow

Over the past 5 weeks a small and select group of pupils from Oldfield Brow Primary School have been working with professional dancer and choreographer Paul Clarke to learn new style Streetdance and create a routine.

The young people were aged between 6 to 10 years old and had previously attended the drama club at the school where they have recently performed a Shakespeare showcase and had a circus skills workshop.

Streetdance was something new for most of the members of the group and during the 5 weeks they learnt how to warm up safely, improve their co-ordination and work as a team to perform a routine with complex timings.

Parents came to watch the performance at the end of the 5 week course and were impressed with what the children had learnt in such a short amount of time.

Paul teaches regularly for All The Skills and his dance credits include Top of the Pops, Nickelodeon and CD UK. He has also appeared in music videos and worked professionally as a model.
