After qualifying in the East Midlands Regional Heats of the Great Big Dance Off, our KS2 dance team travelled to Oxford on Monday for the National Finals.

Well done to Cormac, Roma, Eve, Maddie, Kady, Tatiana, Emmanuela, Vicky, Honey, Mercia, Nattalia, Zeze and Aishat.

Earlier this month, a group of 13 children took part in the City Dance Showcase at the Ellis Guilford School. This was a fantastic event where 12 different schools showcased some very impressive routines. Our group did exceptionally well, performing a contemporary dance routine which was choreographed by Miss Binch (our dance specialist). At the end of the evening, it was announced that St Mary’s had finished in 1st place and that they would go on to represent Nottingham City in the Nottinghamshire School Games Finals in February. A fantastic achievement!
