Art and dance at sum­mer schools

Macclesfield Express - - NEWS -

CHIL­DREN made the most of their hol­i­days with sum­mer schools at Fal­li­b­roome Academy.

The young­sters aged be­tween eight and 14 took part in var­i­ous arts ac­tiv­i­ties through a spe­cial week of sum­mer schools.

More than 150 stu­dents took part and it proved to be a very lively start to the sum­mer break. The five cour­ses were mu­sic and media, drama, dance, mu­si­cal theatre and art, and were led by arts pro­fes­sion­als, in­clud­ing some ex-stu­dents.

Dawn Devine, from the school, said: “The sum­mer schools are al­ways very pop­u­lar. The lead­ers were ably as­sisted by Fal­li­b­roome Academy sixth form per­form­ing arts stu­dents, who ap­plied for the worth­while op­por­tu­nity of a week’s work ex­pe­ri­ence.”

The week ended with an art ex­hi­bi­tion and show­case so fam­i­lies could see how much they had achieved over the five days.

Sue Bean, mother of Katie and Matthew who at­tended the cour­ses, said: “Katie thor­oughly en­joyed the range of dif­fer­ent tech­niques in her art school and the drama course was so good for self-con­fi­dence, poise and self-belief.”
