Our Broadway Boogie program is run by our Performing Arts teacher, Miss McCormack. This specialist program involves exciting visits to our local kindergartens where the children get to experience a Performing Arts session covering the three main elements – Music, Dance and Drama. The children will have the opportunity to sing, play percussion instruments, participate in drama activities and learn some special dances. It is a high energy session which the children absolutely love.
“Thank you so much for coming down to Yarraleen Preschool to conduct music and drama session with the Rainbow Group. The children thoroughly enjoyed the session. We could see that music and drama brought the best in them. You were very friendly yet concise in delivering each of the instructions. The girls were such a great help, too. Their loud singing inspired all of the children to use their best singing voice, even the most shy child attempted to sing along. The session’s timing was really perfect, it was not too short or too long for the children. Everyone stayed engaged and had fun participating. We even had feedbacks from parents that some of them kept on singing ‘My Dad has an electric guitar’ song at home.
We are really looking forward to have you again next time. Once again, thank you for showing the children how much fun music and drama are.”
