Dancing Like the Stars

Dance Beautiful People

Buenos diaz
Today we had our first dance class as we prepare for our performance for Dancing Like The Stars.  We are lucky to have Graham and Gloria who will be working with us for the rest of the term.  We will be learning the Tango.
We have already shown great attitudes and dancing skills so are looking forward to seeing how this develops.
Warming up our bodies
Making sure we can move together
Making sure we work as a group
