Dare2Dance Workshop  

I think the Dare2Dance workshop was very fun, as it was something different. It gave everybody the opportunity to learn new moves and try another style of dance. The instructors were very encouraging and energetic, and also let us watch their dance piece they choreographed themselves which very amazing. We should do more workshops based on dance, because we interact with students in other year groups and it unifies us. Overall, I enjoyed it!
