At Bradgate court we’ve been learning many different styles of dance.

I have been deciding what style of dance we should learn next by conversations we’ve had about music and past experiences of dance.

I have learnt that the guys at Bradgate Court will give anything a try!

This week we learned some swing dance steps!

We used some basic steps to start with so we could get really familiar with what they are doing, learning it as a solo to start with.

We then tried to dance with a partner! Starting with a mirroring exercise, pretending we were looking in a mirror and following our partner to build the skill.

Finally, we tried our swing dance with our partners. It was a good giggle to try and get everyone moving in the same directions but everyone in the end got it!

As the final touch, each pair created their own finishing move to end their dance!
