Class of 2007 Big Dance 2014

Sciennes P7 Big Dance 2014 from Sciennes Primary School on Vimeo.

Can this really be a year ago, S1? In the summer term of 2014, our three then P7 classes performed this fantastic flash mob dance in the playground. Allan Irvine from Dance Base introduced the pupils to the Big Dance Pledge dance - choreographed by Scottish Ballet with a Commonwealth Games theme - at school.

We took part in a community outdoor performance on the Mound in May of that year and then Mr Howie, Mrs Barker and Ms French helped the pupils stage this surprise, impromptu performance, filming it from many different angles, including the Staff Room!

Great editing, Mr Howie, and we love how the rest of the - initially bemused, but fascinated pupils - fill up the space and begin dancing when the P7s have casually drifted off. It was a joy to see that entire P7 year group dance the steps at the Leavers' Party and again on the top landing on the last day of term.

What a fantastic Graduation show on Monday 23rd June from our Magnificent Sevens! The pupils' confidence shone through and we were all so proud of them. Ms French, Mrs Barker and Mr Howie produced a remarkable show and we are grateful to Cat Perry, Director of Dance Division, and Vanessa Robertson for providing choreography using the Commonwealth Games themed Big Dance Pledge. Thank you also to Alan from Dancebase for additional P7 workshops and the invitation to perform at the Big Dance Pledge event the Mound in May. Thank you to Mrs McVicker for all her musical input, rehearsal practices and accompaniment. Thank you to Scott Hodkinson for kindly passing on his photographs and special thanks to Miss Rachel Inglis, Pupil Support Assistant, for filming the Graduation show. An edited video will be posted in due course.We also recognise and value the support of all the parents and carers who have worked with us throughout the last seven years. We pass on every best wish to all our families and hope to hear news of the pupils' continued success. Keep in touch!
