Birtenshaw School (Bolton) pupils go dancing at Old Trafford!

Recently, Rebecca Taylor (teacher) took Kestrels class to the home of Manchester United Football Club for a dance workshop following an invitation from Variety (the Children’s Charity).

Ms Taylor said ‘Pupils had a great day being able to visit Manchester United’s football stadium, watching The Russian Ballet Company and taking part in a dance workshop with Para dance.  The ballet company even presented us with a beautiful statue to remember the visit’.

‘On the 05 March I went to Old Trafford to watch the Russian Ballet company. My favourite part if the day was when the ballet dancers wore light up dresses and they moved like clockwork soldiers, the music was called sugar plum fairy. After lunch I went to the pitch and stood in the millions of seats’.

Damien Parkinson

‘I really liked it when the ballet dancers went on their tippy toes and did their dances in the ballet costumes. We all did some dancing and I really enjoyed it so much that I would love to go back and dance again’.

Millie McCarthy

Ashley Richmond

‘On Tuesday 05 March Kestrels class went to watch 4 dancers from a Russian ballet company at Old Trafford. All the dances were very similar apart from the one which was in the dark with glowing dresses and they danced to music from the nutcracker. I did like the dresses but wouldn’t like to wear the sticky out tutus because I wouldn’t be able to fit through the door’.

Pupils and staff from Birtenshaw School, Bolton would like to thank Variety (the Children’s Charity) for a great day out, as well as everybody at Manchester United, the dancers from the Russian Ballet Company and The Allmed Group – the generous sponsors.
