HALF TERM HOLIDAY CLUB | 8-11YRS

Thu 16 - Fri 17 Feb
£60
8-11 years...

“I had the best time dancing at DanceEast.” – previous participant

 Our Half Term Holiday Club is a fun and exciting way for your child to explore creative dance in an energetic and imaginative way. They’ll be encouraged to learn and express themselves through movement, meet new people, build confidence, and develop fresh skills.

“I made a friend” – previous participant

This February half term, children will explore themes of nature, wildlife and the climate through dance, storytelling, and arts & crafts. Inspired by the current Landscape Rebels Exhibition at Christchurch Mansion, participants will have the opportunity to experience real artifacts and images from the exhibition, dancing among the ancient wildlife of Suffolk whilst learning about the history of East Anglia.

“Fun, wonderful, amazing!” – previous participant

 Both days will run from 9am – 3pm at DanceEast.

Places cost £60 and includes both days of activities. A family concession rate of £50 per sibling is available. To book a sibling concession, please call the box office: 01473 295230.

 

Both days will run as per the following schedule (please note, this is subject to change):

9.00-9.15: Arrival and registration

9.15-10.30: Dance Warm up and Landscape Rebels Discovery Session

10.30-10.45: Break

With two days full of free activities, get stuck into some eco-themed fun at Christchurch Mansion. Meet local experts, learn about our local environment and wildlife, and discover how you can help tackle climate change.
