St Georges International school Luxembourg – 10 – 12th October

My visit to Luxembourg was just fantastic. From the flight to the hotel to the school itself, I had a great time.

The school is situated on the outskirts of the city and from the top classrooms, the views are just spectacular.


The facilities were excellent including a theatre that would be the envy of any professional dance company.

This was my first time teaching in an international school and I was unsure at first how my methods would translate. It took me a little while to figure out that the reason for some of the children’s incredible attentiveness was as much to do with them mentally translating my words whilst I spoke as it was interest in what was being said. The energy of the younger classes I would describe as excited/fidgety and excited/energetic from the juniors. The Y8s were a terrific year group who showed both talent and promise in their work.

Thank you to all of the staff at the school for making my visit there so enjoyable. Please enjoy the videos and photographs from my visit.

Any comments are welcome

Newchurch primary challenge programme. 29/09/2016

20160929_105521Today brings me to Newchurch on the Isle of White. A special day based in the sports pavilion in Newchurch where children from 8 primary schools have been bussed in for a morning or afternoons Stomp dance session. These children have been identified as talented dancers by their school and have as a result signed up for a fairly advanced session.


The morning session was brilliant with a every child working with focus and enthusiasm. I was especially impressed with how well they worked with children from different schools.
