Diwali – Hindu stick dance

Year 1 celebrated the Hindu Festival of Light – Diwali, which marks the return of Lord Rama. We studied a traditional Hindu stick dance that is often danced in celebration of Diwali. We identified some of the key movements that were repeated throughout the dance, and children combined these ideas with some of their own.

Miss Sophie was very impressed with how creative and imaginative Year 1’s dance pieces were!
