Juilliard trained Ingrid Kapteyn, of New York, joined the Primary students for an afternoon of Dance Workshops to explain to them the discipline and strength needed to be a successful dancer. She shared her understanding and knowledge of the medium of dance by teaching us how to roll, walk and turn fluidly and well as building some characterisation work by showing how to position our bodies to look like inanimate objects.
The children really enjoyed this special opportunity and I’m sure will take forward all that they learned to show off their talents in our upcoming production of ‘The Wizard of Oz’!
Ingrid is currently performing in the production of ‘Sleep no more’ in Shanghai.
