Virtual dance workshops bring fun to home-schooling

Take a break from class to learn the secrets of the coolest retro dancefloor moves.

School kids, and their families, can break up the monotony of home-schooling with a series of free, online dance workshops from 4 to 29 May.

Hip hop artist Libby Montilla will run 3, 1-hour dance lessons each day from Monday to Friday. The live electro-pop workshops will provide an opportunity for young people to have a break from lessons, keep moving and join in a fun, energising activity.

The dance sequence will be broken into 3 sections, parts A, B and C. This will enable dancers to return again and again, learn new skills and revise sections.

Libby will provide instructions, demonstrate each move and guide dancers through each section of the electro-pop choreography. Participants will have the chance to ask questions at the end of each workshop about either the dance steps or Libby’s career as a professional dancer.

Also, as part of the workshops, dance company Shaun Parker & Company, will invite everyone to add their own moves to the dance sequences. Each participant will develop their own 8-count dance moves that will be integrated into an electro-pop finale performance at the end of the program.
