Following assembly, we spent the morning in the Performing Arts Centre, which allowed us to stretch, move around and explore elements of dance and drama. We did an ice-breaker activity to familiarise ourselves with the space, each other and the music. We also played a drama game called Abstract Circles, where with partner, students enter the circle, improvise and make a pair shape using contact with only one body part each, hold still and wait for next pair. Others observe and think about shape that could be made (without discussing). This is to build confidence, think abstractly, improvise and develop non-verbal communication creating and performing skills creative thinking and responses.
Students then formed groups and performed their own adaptation from a scene from a movie, story or music lyric.
