I have worked in a school for over 21 years, most recently as a PA to the Head Teacher. As such, I appreciate the substantial pressure on children and teachers and the need for a healthy balance.
It is almost impossible to put into words the feeling I get when I see the children's positive development - not just in dance but as individuals.
We started dancing in 2010 although we had been thinking about it for several years. The mental and physical benefits were immediately apparent as were the social aspects.
Dancing competitively at the Winter Gardens and the Tower Ballrooms in Blackpool was simply amazing.
In 2016, we were asked to perform an exhibition dance for Years 5 and 6. The reaction from the children was incredible. As a result, parents and teachers were very keen to have a school dance club.
Robin and I both hold current DBS clearance certificates.
