Killisick Junior School’s Dance Team are through to finals in National Dance Competition!

Children will dance at The Great Big Dance off in Cheltenham in July

A dance team from Killisick Junior School in Arnold is celebrating after winning the primary school section in the regional heats of The Great Big Dance Off.

The Great Big Dance Off is a national dance competition, open to schools across England and Wales and brings together children of all abilities and age groups to have fun showcasing their dancing skills.

The eight-strong Killisick dance team performed their dance called ‘Human’, at The Albert Hall, Nottingham, and following their win will now go on to dance at the national finals in Cheltenham on July 4th.

Dancers in the winning team range from Years 4 to 6 and pupil Saiyah-Rose Dulay (Year 5) said the whole team loves to dance. “It was very exciting dancing as we didn’t need to audition, and it was our first dance competition too. I was nervous because lots of people were watching us!  It didn’t matter about winning, -I just wanted to take part. My favourite part was when Killisick won and also dancing together because it was fun.”

Sophie Lincoln, Year 5 class teacher and Dance Lead at Killisick Junior School worked with children to choreograph the winning routine. She said, “I am incredibly proud of all of the girls. They channelled their nervous energy into their dance and were outstanding. It was never about the winning for us, -and the girls didn’t really talk about the competition elements of the event. It was more about dancing, having fun and being who we are.

“All of the girls showed great enjoyment, perseverance, aspiration, and respect during all of the rehearsals and while at the event. We are all excited for the final and will just dance our best and have fun. That’s all I can ask for!”
