The Celebration Dance was our second virtual competition for this term, we had a total of 10 schools entering with over 20 videos sent in to be judged. The theme of the competition was friendship and celebration and was aimed at all primary and secondary aged children.
Some schools ran their own intra school bubble competitions and then sent in their chosen entries to be judged. Dances had to be a maximum of 4 minutes long and some excellent footage was sent in to the South Cambs Schools Sports Partnership judging panel! We wanted all children to enjoy the dance competition and have a positive experience and we certainly felt this was the case watching through the videos.
“Thank you for organising this virtual Dance Competition, our whole school has thoroughly enjoyed this challenge. The 3 classes we picked to enter were very excited about receiving their certificates today.” Histon & Impington Junior School
“Thank you very much for this fantastic news, we are all so glad that the dance made you smile. The children and the class teacher are overjoyed with the result! Once again thank for organising these brilliant virtual competitions, our kids are really enjoying them and so am I!” Linton Heights Junior School
