Let's Face the Teacher and Dance

Description

A look at how dancing has taken off at Perryfields High School in Oldbury, after it was introduced into the curriculum.

At Perryfields, dancing can be seen in the classroom, on the stage and even in the playground, turning break times into show times.

Perryfields is now promoting a new and ambitious project to give everyone in the country aged five to 19 the chance to dance in front of an audience.

The U.Dance project, run by Youth Dance England, aims to demonstrate how performance dancing can stimulate creativity as well as fitness.

Hip hop star Kymberlee Jay, who describes herself as a plus size dancer, tells pupils that anyone can learn how to dance given the right opportunity and encouragement.
