Dancing with Juilliard
At the beginning of this month Mrs Lowe jetted off to New York City to work with Juilliard Performing Arts School. She was part of a small group of Dance specialists from Nord Anglia Schools working with the Dance Faculty at Juilliard in preparation for the launch of the dance programme in September 2017. Mrs Lowe was introduced to the ‘Core Works’ that will form part of the dance curriculum at The British International School Abu Dhabi. All students from FS1 – Year 8 will have an opportunity to experience a wide variety of dance styles and choreographers. Ranging from Flamenco, Ballet, Bharatanatyam and Contemporary.
For staff delivering the ‘Core Works’ Juilliard have created a fantastic resource called the ‘Juilliard Creative Classroom’. All Physical Education Teaching staff will be introduced to the dance material to support the delivery of Dance in the PE programme of study. This is a very exciting time for dance at BIS Abu Dhabi.
