Taverham Hall Norfolk
Ancient Egyptian Dance & Music workshop for Schools
Lorraine, our instructor for the morning, arrived with an absolute passion for her subject and this engaged the children straight away. She has spent 26 years working with children through the medium of dance and music, allowing them to immerse themselves in the culture of many different countries around the world. Lorraine talked the children through the history of Egyptian dance and the Gods who were known for their love of it. In addition, she spoke about the instruments, what they were made from and also their names. We even spoke a little Arabic to each other! Year 3 were amazing and some hidden dance talents were certainly revealed. We learnt ten different dance moves from traditional Egyptian dance and then performed a group dance, complete with clothing and music typical at that time. Lorraine’s company, Multicultural Dance was winner of the prestigious Dr Frank Bates Dance & Musical Theatre Award as part of the 2016 Norfolk Arts Awards. She commented very positively on the children’s behavior and engagement. Mrs Sarah Howe, Miss Jemma Holmes and Mr Adam Sayer of Taverham Hall Norwich Norfolk, were extremely proud of the way in which the children embraced this wonderful opportunity and were thoroughly impressed with the dancing that they saw. The morning was educational as well as great fun.

‘Year 4 had a fantastic time at your workshops this week, they came away saying they felt confident and more able to join in the dance. Your style of teaching was nurturing and made them feel comfortable and let them show what they could do. I feel this workshop really encouraged our children to ask questions and learn more about Native Americans Thank you again Kelsey Gingell Stifford Clay’s Primary school Essex
We were really pleased with the way the children became so engaged in the spirit of what you were communicating – this showed in the improvisation part of the dance workshop. We are going to be able to build on the foundation that you set up in our dance unit this half-term and look forward to performing our finished dances to family and friends in our ‘Indian Experience’ day at the end of term. Many thanks
