On Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th May, all of our KS2 pupils will be visiting the Lighthouse to watch and take part in a special schools' concert by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Above, there is a link to the resources page where you can watch the videos and practise your song, makaton signing, body percussion, dance and instruments. There are three things pieces EVERYONE needs to know and these are the videos that will help you:
1a) I Wanna Dance - Makaton signing and teaching video (10 mins)
1b) I Wanna Dance - full run of song with Makaton signing (4 mins)
2a) Dance of The Night - body percussion teaching video (10 mins)
2b) Dance of The Night - body percussion full run (3 mins)
3a) Dvorak Slavonic Dance - choreography teaching video (7 mins 30)
3b) Dvorak Slavonic Dance - full run of piece with choreography (you might want to adjust the play back settings on the video to a speed of 0.75 for this one!) (4 mins)
There is also an instrumental teaching video for Dance of The Night if you are playing the ukulele or the recorder at the concert.
Below, you can watch some recordings of some of the pieces you will hear at the concert. All of the music is inspired in some way by dance. Enjoy!
