My name is Sarah Aldcroft
I have been teaching dance for 16 years now and have been lucky enough to be a part of this school for 7. I have seen many talented dancers come and go during my time at the school and I am really excited to now be a fully fledged Staff Member here at Blackley.
I teach every year group from Nursery to YR6 and we have been learning about different types of dance including street dance, rock n roll and Bollywood. Each class gets a dance class with me once a week. I have also been working really hard with the dance clubs here too.
We have 4 dance teams and we rehearse on a Monday and Friday before school, Tuesday lunchtime, Wednesday lunchtime and Wednesday after school. Our dance teams are our YR1 cheer leading team EA lightning, YR2 Cheer leading team EA Snowballs, YR3/4 cheer leading team EA Intensity and our YR5/6 Street Cheer team EA Extreme.
We are hoping to take more than just one team to the UK Schools Nationals this year which is held annually in June at The Velodrome in Manchester.
