Balletskolen Visit 2015
14 students from Birmingham Ormiston Academy (BOA) and 14 students from Balletskollen in Holstebro, Denmark have been paired up to participate in the ‘Speak Dance’ project. Students from BOA will be travelling to Holstebro in Denmark from 4th January to 10th January 2015 to experience education in a different country with a specific focus on Dance. In March 2015 a group of 14 students from Balletskollen will be travelling to Birmingham to experience what education is like in the United Kingdom. During their time abroad students will also participate in a range of cultural activities and work together to create a dance performance piece that will be performed on 7th March 2015 in the BOA Theatre.
Three members of staff from each school will also be visiting their partner school to experience the difference in teaching and learning with a particular focus on dance teaching and pedagogy.
The project is funded by Erasmus funding and all participants are from year 10 in BOA or grade 9 students in Balletskollen.
