Email to our artist….

I just wanted to send an email to say thanks again for such a fabulous, engaging and energetic day with our children. They thoroughly enjoyed their workshops, and it was truly heartwarming to see their talents and enthusiasm shine through. You were truly brilliant with all age groups keeping them going and you were brilliant at engaging with all the children. Thanks again and we hope to have you back in our school in the future!

“I am writing with reference to the work produced by the organisation, Wise Moves. HMP & YOI Ashfield has recently hosted the Annual Regional Respect Conference which was held on the 2nd September 2009. As part of the day’s event programme Wise Moves provided two artists- one from Hong Kong and one from Pakistan/India……Each of the artists gave a talk covering aspects of their unique culture and performed a traditional dance of their country……

The experience proved to be a great success with everyone involved and provided an extremely rewarding and fun way of learning about Cultural Diversity both within the work place and the community. Wise Moves offer an excellent and comprehensive service that will meet the requirements of any organisation who are looking to give Cultural/Diversity training or raise awareness”

“I had to e-mail to say that the dance workshop we have just had delivered at our school was outstanding. Dee was simply amazing. The children have been hooked from the moment she stood at the front of the assembly this morning. Her delivery, warmth and talent are second to none and we would love to book her again for another workshop if at all possible?! She also delivered this at one of our other schools last week and they too were blown away. Please can you pass on our thanks and all the compliments to her. In all my years of teaching and now Headship, I have never had a visitor in school quite like her!”

Indian Dance for Diwali – St Augustine’s First School

“The artist you sent us today was excellent and we would highly recommend her for any similar workshops. For example, she invited the children to make comparisons with their own experiences of festivals, and built on their knowledge of the different animals in the Chinese New Year story by incorporating some of their movements into the dancing. She was also very confident when leading the parent sharing session and made it fun!  A big thank you to her and to you.”
