Not only were we treated to our very own Year 8 rock supergroup playing a spirited rendition of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ as we arrived for Assembly today, but Roger continued the theme with his history of breakdancing!
Roger showed how it originated with Shaolin Kung Fu around 1500 years ago, and over the centuries melded elements of Brazil’s capoeira and samba, Irish and tap dancing, disco and hip hop, leading to break dancing. Roger, dressed for the part in tracksuit and crepes, assembled his ‘crew’ on stage taking us through its evolution, and we watched some fantastic clips showing the different dance forms.
We hope to start a Streetdance Club in our Other Half, and next week there will be a taster session for interested pupils.
