Dance Brings Book To Life
Friday, 06 March 2020
West End In Schools helped children at Beech House Infant School to bring a book to life through the medium of dance in a series of workshops. The visit was linked to the school’s World Book Day activities.
Dance workshops took place for each class throughout the day. With a little help from Christy from West End In Schools, the children told the story of ‘The Enormous Crocodile’ by Roald Dahl, which they had enjoyed reading in their classes before the event. They turned their arms into snapping jaws as they became the crocodile, pretended to be trees, playground equipment, fairground rides and a picnic bench through still poses, and used fun gestures and movements to represent the children, the hippopotamus, the monkey, the Roly-Poly Bird and the elephant.
Each workshop ended with the children showing off what they had learned and telling the story of ‘The Enormous Crocodile’ in a fun performance for their teachers.
