Burpham Primary School, Guildford. Friends of the Forest Project January 2011
Funded by Guildford Borough Arts
With live musical accompaniment the children danced life in the forest.
The hand gestures of Indian dance were a starting point for this expressive movement. The children experienced aspects of the science curriculum through Indian dance theatre. They learnt how to use their bodies and facial expressions to create character and to express emotion.

Every October Nick and Sarra offer three days of dance and music workshops at Tillingbourne school to help devise the Deevali school assembly for parents and students.
The dance is interwoven into the drama where students present the story of Rama and Seeta.
