“As the Arts Coordinator it has been my aim to raise the profile of dance at West Hill Primary School.
Katie’s experience, knowledge and enthusiasm has meant that as a school, all year groups have experienced high quality dance sessions. Teaching staff have worked alongside Katie and been given the support and guidance that they have individually requested to enable them to plan and teach dance as part of our school curriculum.
The Street Dance sessions in particular have been a great success with all the children and were a great way to get the older boys moving. In the new academic year, we are now planning to expand the children’s experiences further by developing themed dance sessions that will link with the children’s topic work. The staff and children, look forward to our continued working partnership with Katie.”
