Bollywood dancing

This week Year 4 had a Bollywood dance taster session. In a short space of time, we learnt a number of key signature moves from a trained choreographer. After rehearsing each of the steps, we performed the whole dance to music.

In our performance, look out for our hand movements. These act as a form of sign language to help to tell a story or demonstrate themes such as weather, animals or places. You might also notice our distinctive foot movements, where we put all our weight on one side and lift the right leg from the knee over and over, moving our hips in time.
