Primary 1 and 2 have got together and have been very busy practising their ballroom dancing, getting ready to put on a show for you – Strictly Come Dancing (Yester style!)
Formal invitations will follow, but we are planning to hold the event on Thursday, 6th March 1:30 – 2:50. You are very welcome to join us!

We have already started learning some Charleston steps…..
* stand on the spot
* put one foot forward
* go back to the spot
* put the other leg behind
* go back to the spot

Use the music and pictures to help you practise at home!

* hand slide (repeat with other arm)
* roll arms forward
