September 2018 opened a door for ‘male dancers’. The BIS Abu Dhabi CCA programme offered a new all male dance company ‘Boys Momentum Dance Company’.
Gaynor Heptinstall–Lowe promoted the company as a new initiative to engage boys in dance. Mrs. Lowe believes that dance builds strength and coordination, it improves the posture by building up the core muscles needed to keep your body upright and strong. Dance can build a student’s confidence, with performance opportunities and a sense of pride in what the dancer accomplishes. Dance can allow for self-expression, to express emotions and passion more openly. Dance can improve overall health, both health of body and health of mind. Team work can be encouraged through dance either with a partner or in a group, and dance can provide opportunities.
The boys Momentum Dance Company is in search for additional students from Year 5, 6, 7 and 8 to be part of the BSME Dance Project. If your child is interested please contact Mrs. Lowe by email Gaynor.Lowe@bisad.ae because most importantly dance is FUN.
