Football Freestyle workshop

 

The workshops with Rebaz were fantastic. He took time to help each of the children and built up their skills with time- making sure it was tailored to all of their needs. All of the teachers were very positive about his lessons and the children have begun challenging themselves on the playground to freestyle techniques. Highly recommended.

Beatboxing workshops

 

 Oh wow, I don't have words to describe how fantastic the workshops were. Jim Fox was AMAZING. The children were enthralled from start to finish and the staff were all very impressed too! The demonstrations he did in the assembly were spot on and captivated everyone. The workshops were well aimed at the age groups of the children and he had a lovely manner with them. He was professional and polite to everyone he met and his skills were unbelievable. 

 

Thank you for providing Jim and this workshop - it has inspired so many adults and children at our school and we had a brilliant time.

Would highly recommend to others!

Thank you, Red Panda and Rebaz (football freestyler) for a great workshop. The pupils at our school absolutely loved your demonstrations and were amazed by what you could do with a football. The way Rebaz tailored each session to the age groups given made it possible for everyone to have a go themselves. His rapport with the children was not only professional but also personal and I would highly recommend him for any school wanting to give children first-hand experiences of something they may not have seen previously. Thank you, Red Panda and Rebaz for making our schools sports day one to remember.

Samba workshops

 

Samba dancing was marvellous – Simone was great and really engaged the kids.
She was fabulous, so enthusiastic and it was really well led in a way that made it accessible for all.
She also talked about the emotion of the dance and this got my class participating well and to a high standard.
I didn’t actually do the dancing with my kids as it was my management time but the teacher who did it with them said the woman who came in was excellent! The kids really enjoyed it!

We have used Red Panda Agency for several Year- they always attend our Hispanic days and have provided excellent workshops across all Year Groups. The pupils here have thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and always request them back. The pupils engage with the workshop leaders who are talented and also enthusiastic, patient and always willing to help. I would not hesitate in recommending them to any school.

Elias’ capoeira session surpassed all expectations. He is highly skilled and clearly passionate about capoeira, this enthusiasm extending out to the children who thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. Our Year 5 children left the workshop raving about it! It was highly inclusive and the pace and structure made it straightforward for all children to understand and join in with. Capoeira provided a brilliant mixture of martial art, music, dance and performance that appealed to each and every one of us. We would not hesitate to have him back for another session at the school.

Red panda agency – Samba and Capoeira Workshops

 

Elias and Nayara came to us for 2 days and ran workshops for the entire Infant and Nursery School. The workshops were pacy and active, and certainly made our children work hard! The dance moves were suitable for all of the children, with minor adjustments, and all of our children, from 3 to 7 loved having a go. The final performances were a nice way for the children to showcase their talents. We all felt we had spent a little time in Brazil, and that we all knew a little more about the dance styles. Thank you, both for your hard work and enthusiasm.

We were delighted with the workshops offered by Red panda agency – African drumming, Break dance and Brazilian Capoeira. The tutors were highly professional and engaged the students fully. The students enjoyed the opportunity of experiencing a fun activity delivered by lively, dynamic presenters. We would recommend them to anyone wanting a new experience for their students.

Drumming Testimonial

Bicudo (African drumming and percussion teacher) has worked with children in Year 5, once a week for a term and the children have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They have loved learning new rhythms and have loved the dance element involved. Bicudo is a very skilled drummer and children have been expected to watch and copy his skills.

We have enjoyed having Red panda agency and Bicudo working in our school and look forward to more opportunities to work with him in the future.

Bicudo visited the Grove School in September 2013 to provide Capoeira workshops for our students. Bicudo skilfully tailored the workshops to the students needs incorporating instruments and rhythmical music for our younger learners. Our older students very much enjoyed the physical challenge of the session saying “It was great fun, but made us feel like we had been to the gym”. Some students who may at times be introverted and less engaged in new experiences were highly stimulated and motivated to join in, it was delightful to see their animated smiles and complete absorption in the workshops.
The Capoeira workshops enabled the students to actively experience the sounds and cultures of another country, which was a valuable learning experience that everyone very much enjoyed.

Year 3 Dance Workshop

On Wednesday, as part of the Black history focus, Year 3 took part in a Capoeira dance workshop led by the talented Elias. The children all joined in brilliantly to develop their movements into a sequence with their partner, whilst also gaining an understanding of the history behind the dance. Such cooperation, respect and commitment!  It is great to see our values filtering through all aspects daily life at Strand. Thank you to those families who have already sent payments into the office. If you have not yet had a chance to do so, Kevin and Lorraine are very happy to receive your contributions. If your child is in Year 3 ask them to show you some moves over the holiday!

We arranged for Elias and Elizangela to come to Wimbledon Chase Primary School to bring our geography topic on the Amazing Americas to life for our Year 6's. We doing a focused study on Brazil and comparing it to the UK and were keen to immerse the children in Brazilian culture. The Samba and Capoeira workshops they ran were high-energy, educational and great fun and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. An excellent experience all-around!

Testimonial for Dhol drumming, percussion and Bollywood dance workshop Wednesday 8th February 2017 at Norbreck Primary Academy.

 

Nav delivered a successful and enjoyable workshop in which the children got thoroughly involved and learnt many new skills. He certainly impressed the children with his own performance on the drums, a very talented drummer. He delivered good background knowledge and took the time to explain to the children what the drums were made of. Also, his delivery was very child-friendly particularly when teaching dance, the imagery he used was brilliant for the Year 2 children. It was a superb workshop enjoyed by pupils & staff.

Thank you so much.

We had great pleasure to welcome Red Panda dance group to school.  We were led by Chris, who helped us all learn some fantastic samba moves. All children had a wonderful, energetic time, as did the teachers, who showed us their moves!  This has been an amazing part of our whole school topic, #RoadtoRio.

Carnival Workshop

 

We had a great time in Year 1 when Latisha came to visit.  She was excellent with the children, very calm and they all listened.

 

She had great warm up activities and songs.  And just the right level of dance moves to get the children excited and wanting to learn.  All classes had a brilliant time and very much enjoyed the whole class Carnival outside altogether. The right amount of time spent in each class was perfect, and everything was fun and engaging.

 

Possibly there could have been more scarves for everyone to enjoy a scarf whilst they were doing the practice, and possibly a few more instruments.

 

Other than that, we had a great time
