Class of 2007 Flash Mob Dance 2014
Sciennes P7 Big Dance 2014 from Sciennes Primary School on Vimeo.

Can this really be a year ago, former pupils now in S1? In the summer term of 2014, our three then P7 classes performed this fantastic flash mob dance in the playground. Allan Irvine from Dance Base introduced the pupils to the Big Dance Pledge dance – choreographed by Scottish Ballet with a Commonwealth Games theme – at school.

We took part in a community outdoor performance on the Mound in May of that year and then Mr Howie, Mrs Barker and Ms French helped the pupils stage this surprise, impromptu performance in the playground, filming it from many different angles, including the Staff Room!

Great editing, Mr Howie, and we love how the rest of the – initially bemused, but fascinated pupils – fill up the space and begin dancing when the P7s have casually drifted off. It was a joy to see that entire P7 year group dance the steps at the Leavers’ Party and again on the top landing on the last day of term. We hope to make sure our current P7s have an equally happy and memorable send off in the oh-too-soon forthcoming weeks.
