Robert Miles Infant School students inspired to 'keep dancing' by former Strictly Come Dancing star Robin Windsor
Schoolchildren were inspired to ‘keep dancing’ by a former TV star.
Strictly Come Dancing veteran Robin Windsor led a series of dance lessons at Robert Miles Infants’ School, Bingham.
Robin (pictured with pupils and staff) said: “For me, seeing the kids confidence grow while learning to dance even in such a short space of time proves how important it is to allow children an opportunity to explore their creative side.
“Dance provides everybody with the tools to blossom and shine resulting in a real boost in self-esteem and self-belief.
“It is also a fantastic way of keeping both physically and mentally healthy whilst having fun.”
The day was supported by nearby dance school. Dance Lobo.
Amy Jacques, PE coordinator at the school, said: “At Robert Miles Infants we like children to experience a variety of sports and dance is a great way to have fun, learn a skill and keep fit.”
School head Sonja Adams said: “Children, staff and parents were very excited about Robin’s visit.
“Our children and staff took part in a dance workshop where they learnt to put together a sequence of moves to music.
“The children were brilliant, showing great coordination and passion.
“What the staff lacked in ability they made up for with enthusiasm.
“Robin was an inspiration to us all and we will ‘keep dancing’.”
