Ghost Dance

Year 5 Maple have started to research about Native American life this half term.

As an introduction to this, they have started learning about a special dance called Ghost Dance which was first introduced in 1840s in what is now present-day Nevada.

They are choreographing short sequences to include in a whole class performance in a modern-day interpretation of the dance. By respectfully using aspects and images of Native American life to depict short stories, each group have worked together, sharing ideas and supporting each other, resulting in the beginnings of a brilliant dance routine of which they will be proud to perform.
