Saint George’s Day Dance Competition

on May 5, 2013

On April 23rd, we celebrated Saint George’s Day. Saint George is the patron saint of both Catalunya and England, so it’s an extra special holiday for us! Every year, we hold a dance competition. The students choreograph, rehearse and plan these dances completely on their own. They learn important lessons about team work and cooperation, as well as the importance of creativity and self expression. 1st and 2nd grades competed against each other. The winning group performed to the song “Dynamite” by Taio Cruz. Congratulations, girls! There was also a special prize awarded to the only boy in the competition, Pablo. Great job, everyone!

El 23 de abril, celebramos la diada de Sant Jordi. Sant Jordi, o San Jorge es el patrón de Catalunya e Inglaterra, ¡entonces es una fiesta muy especial para nosotros! Cada año, celebramos un concurso de bailes. Los estudiantes inventan los pasos, ensayan y planean esos bailes ellos solos. Aprenden la importancia del trabajo en equipo, y también la importancia de la creatividad y la autoexpresión. Primero y segundo se competieron. El grupo ganador bailaron a la canción “Dynamite” por Taio Cruz. ¡Enhorabuena, chicas! También, había un premio especial para el único chico en la competición, Pablo. ¡Muy bien hecho, todos!
