Year 6 learn to ballroom dance

Year 6 learn to ballroom dance

As part of their topic on the Titanic Year 6 students spent the afternoon with a dance instructor learning how to ballroom dance.

Students have been experiencing what life would have been like on board the Titanic and as part of that enjoyed an afternoon of ballroom dancing - the preferred choice of dancing on board the Titanic.

Although a little apprehensive at dancing with the opposite sex all students enjoyed the afternoon, had smiles on their faces and enjoyed learning a new skill.

Year 6 teacher Miss Stephanie Cross said ‘I think today has been a fantastic experience as it gives students more of a feel for what life was like on board the Titanic. The music and dancing is very different to what the students dance and listen to now and none of them knew how to ballroom dance so it has been an enjoyable afternoon filled with laughter where they have learnt something new.’
