This week would have been the Newcastle Primary Schools Dance Festival which was due to welcome approx. 50 schools to the City Hall, allowing each school to showcase their dance routine.
In light of the Dance Festival not taking place, our Newcastle Dance Specialist Beth has put together a Dance Challenge. She has broken a dance routine down into bite size pieces which children at home or at school can learn over the week and then perform on Friday.
Through YouTube we are promoting and sharing the 4 separate segments. Children can learn and practice each part of the dance like they would have done at school in preparation for the Dance Festival.
We have included the links to the YouTube clips below or alternatively you can follow Twitter @PE_Sport Service

Day 5 - We will be encouraging children to perform the Dance to their families, perhaps film and share via social media, like many of the children have been doing during this time.
We thank you for your time and very much hope you're able to engage with the Dance Challenge; finally we wish everyone at your school well and look forward to seeing them all again very soon.
