In the programme Bobbie Gargrave, dance advisory teacher for Barking and Dagenham, works with a Year 4 class to choreograph a dance piece about Ancient Egypt.

The dance is developed in five sections, representing the first five lessons, and lesson six is a performance of the whole piece.

Throughout, Bobbie offers advice on lesson objectives, and ways to encourage the William Ford C of E pupils to develop and learn.

This programme aims to show what high quality dance is and the sort of skills that it develops in pupils.
