Warriner Dance Festival Starts BBC Campaign

The Warriner Starts BBC Oxfords Move It! Dance Campaign

BBC Oxford used The Warriner School Primary Dance Festival to kick off its Move It Campaign. The campaign is designed to get pupils dancing across the county and raise levels of inactivity. Set to the music of Move Your Feet by D.A.N.C.E our Warriner leaders learnt the 10 dance steps and performed the moves to our primary pupils from years 1 and 2. The pupils then performed these as part of their warm up routine.

The main festival content was based upon songs from the West End Musical Matilda. Schools had been reading parts of the book for world book day and pupils had been made familiar with the story. The first dance to the song When I grow up provided the opportunity for leaders to interact with pupils and discuss what they wanted to be when they grew up. The second dance, based upon the song Revolting Children allowed for plenty of foot stomping and face pulling before learning the final reprise. Pupils then perform these in front of their teachers and helpers with terrific passion and gusto.

A huge debt of gratitude goes to Maddie Freeman and Heather Rumsby who have choreographed and trained the leaders each Friday in preparation for the festival. The leaders from school years 7, 8 and 9 where exemplary and interviewed superbly as part of the BBC Oxford Radio’s breakfast show.
