Year 9 Free Running/Parkour
Over the last term in Dance, Y9 has been working on a ‘Free Running’ topic. ‘Free Running/ Parkour’ is the skill of moving through the environment in the quickest way possible; over and around obstacles by incorporating gymnastic skills. Pupils have learned a dance motif focusing on key physical skills such as strength, flexibility, stamina, and key movements including roll, jump, balance, and contact. Pupils are now developing their motifs into a piece of choreography that includes apparatus to show their idea of Free Running. The Year 9’s have excelled in this topic, showcasing some excellent dance and fitness skills as well as teamwork. They are enjoying a chance to explore dance with props and apparatus linked to an exciting stimulus. Well done Year 9- I look forward to seeing your finished performances for your assessment!
