CELEBRATE THE QUEENS 90th THROUGH DANCE

What a wonderful celebration; the queen's 90th birthday, 60 years of reign, what an inspirational woman!

Our Queen is the longest ever reigning British Monarch, has lived through 6 decades of change and has been patron to over 600 organisations in the UK and the commonwealth.  We have designed a workshop to celebrate her life through music and dance and to open a discussion about what we can learn from her.
