Joydens Wood Junior School

Dance Competition 2015

The annual Dartford Primary Schools dance competition was held on 23rd June at Hextable Primary. 

We had been informed before the event that the children would be dancing to 'Uptown Funk' and had to learn a routine which would be taught to them by two Hextable teachers. They then had some time to practise this and add a piece of their own on the end.

We selected 8 girls and 2 boys from Years 5/6 from many that had auditioned to take part.  The children spent some lunchtimes with Karen Starbuck, who runs our school dance camp practising an ending to the dance. 

Unfortunately, one of our girls was ill the day before so Bethany very kindly agreed to take her place.

There were 6 schools taking part, all performing really well in front of the judges.  After all the schools had shown their dances, the results were announced and Joydens Wood had won first place!

Well done to all our dancers!!
