Chinese New Year: Dragon Dancing

This morning we worked with Miss Mason and Miss Johnson to do some Chinese dragon dancing. We thought about different ways that we could move our bodies like a dragon. First we watched a dragon dance from a Chinese New Year parade to see how the dragons moved. We then encorporated these styles of movements into our dance thinking carefully about our arms, head, body and legs. We worked as a team to make the effect of a giant dragon, it was very important that we listened carefully to the instructions to make sure it was effective!

We also performed some of our dragon moves to each other after our dance!
