Performing Arts, Grade 5/6, Term 4, Week 2

Welcome Grade 5/6s to week two of the Australian Ballet Company’s workshops. From some of the emails I received and the dancing of the children onsite last Thursday with Mrs Cocklin, it would seem that workshop 1 was a pretty big hit! Well done if you completed the first workshop.

This week’s workshop builds on from part 1 so I’m hoping to hear some more positive reflections and comments about your experience. The big difference this week is that you will get to participate in your ABC’s workshop at school and with your friends.

  • How many different sections does the song have?
  • Which parts are repeated? How many times?
  • Practise until you can perform it without watching
