Children's dance performance after months of workshops

A four-month pilot project has just come to an end involving five London primary schools.

The project targeted children who have not had experience of dance or in fact theatre and teachers inexperienced in teaching dance, to show them the benefits of dance and the value of dance education.

Today the children provided their own performance following months of workshops and education. It is being evaluated by two education experts for academic benefits and if successful will lead to a three-year project for many more schools.

The project, Dance Quest, has been set up by The Prince's Foundation for Children & the Arts and has involved education and dance practitioners from Sadler's Wells, Wayne McGregor and Random Dance.
