For the past two weeks students from Leasowes High School and Pedmore High School have attended ‘Art In Motion Dance Academy’ in Cradley Heath (who’s Principal Director is none other than Strictly Come Dancing’s Amy Dowden!!) to learn to the art of Latin Dance.
Students have been taught by expert Latin teachers and across all 5 Latin dances, cha-cha-cha, paso doble, rumba, jive, and samba. Each of the sessions last 4 hours! They were very intensive sessions, spent learning a formation piece to a compilation of Queen songs.
Although faced with many dance challenges, the students thoroughly enjoyed their experience and some wish to continue further with their Latin dance journey.
A huge thank you to all staff at Art In Motion Dance Academy for hosting us at your studio and for giving our students another elite experience.
