Emmaville Primary School


15th May 2020

Despite being unable to host this year's Dance Festival at the Sage, the Gateshead Schools' Sports Partnership have worked hard to launch an online dance event, called #DANCEUNITE.  This has involved a brand new song, by Channy Thompson, a dance routine specially choreographed by the Creative Dance Centre, and a series of coaching sessions streamed every day this week. 
The SSP's aim, at a time when we can't physically be together, was to help us to connect with others and unite, by getting involved in learning new skills and joining in with the dance.  Many of us have been practising the dance at home, as we have at school, and today was the finale, when we joined everyone else participating around Gateshead in dancing the full routine.  As you can see, the costume cupboard was raided, which made for a wonderfully colourful routine in the hall - a lovely end to the week.
