Competing against 28 other schools from across the London region, Woodcroft’s composition, titled ‘INSIDE’ was based around themes of child mental health.
Serena Williams, Woodcroft’s Choreographer described, ”INSIDE’ explores the intense and overwhelming emotions experienced by young people with mental health issues. An array of feelings that are often hidden are exposed through dance with the notion of finding strength through the support of others.’
Kay Vanner, Assistant Head, explained,‘This year Woodcroft is looking at ways to support pupil well-being and mental health throughout the school. The dance team decided to use this as a focus for their composition.’
It is fitting that this week is Children’s Mental Health Week, 5th – 11th February. Read more at https://www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk/
