New Horizons Digital Dance Festival December 2020
On Tuesday 15th December 2020 pupils from Year 5 took part in New Horizons Digital Dance Festival. It was hosted by Black Country Dance Hub (BCDH) and was broadcast live over Facebook and YouTube.
The festival was open to Schools, Colleges, Universities and Community Dance Groups. It was a celebration of dance performances created and put in a film format before, during or after Lockdown. BCDH then combined all dance recordings into a professionally edited dance festival film to celebrate the wealth and talent of all the young dancers called “Children & Young People performing in a changing world”
The whole festival was a huge success and the children (and staff) really enjoyed taking part. On the night, Kings Hill received lots of positive feedback.
“What gorgeous dancing students.”
“This is so powerful, the children are really focused”
“Fabulous Kings Hill”
“My daughters are transfixed – they wished their primary school had done this”
“Wonderful. Loving this … following the sun. Beautiful.”
“Fantastic well done Kings Hill Primary School”
You will be able to watch the complete dance performance below.
Finally a big thank you to Mrs Hendrix for choreographing the performance, the Year 5 pupils for all their hard work and Mark Anderson who helped to edit the film.
