St. George's Day Celebration, Evergreen School, Bishop Auckland

The Evergreen School is a school for children aged 2-11 with various disabilities and degrees of severity.  The staff had helped the children prepare a number of activities to celebrate St. George's day including a play about St. George and the dragon.  To help things along they asked Blacksheep to come and do some demonstration dances as part of the play and then to teach the children some Morris dances.  In all there were two performances at the morning assemblies and then three teaching sessions with different class groups.  The children (and the staff) were fantastic and they all took part in the dancing enthusiastically.  The morning ended with us having lunch with some of the older children.  it really was a memorable session.
