HALLS Head Primary School students are spending May increasing their fitness and confidence by “busting a move” thanks to a partnership with Mandurah’s award winning Wicked Dance Works.
Year 5 students are engaging in weekly hip-hop classes at school as part of their Performing Arts education.
Performing arts teacher Sian Dhu said the program was not only immensely popular with students but was also very beneficial.
“The hip-hop genre is an awesome avenue for all students to explore dance,’’ she said.
“But as well as being a tonne of fun, it teaches valuable skills like teamwork and endurance.’’
Wicked Dance work director Louisa Grant agreed.
“Hip-hop is a great way to get children active and involved in dance,’’ she said.
“The mixture of current music and funky moves appeals to both boys and girls and makes for a high energy, fun class.’’
