Rachel Avloniti Head of Year 5 and English and Drama Co-ordinator wrote: "Our Year 6 children have just enjoyed a wonderful two days working with Jonathan. He choreographed 4 dances and a finale for their end of year show involving all of the children.
He was excellently prepared and pitched the dances perfectly for a group who varied greatly in ability and confidence! He had an efficient, calm manner with the children, kept them on task and adapted to their needs. All of them responded really positively to their workshops and were all able to learn and perform their dances proudly to their audiences over 4 performances.
It was a great privilege for the children and staff to be able to work with a professional. I would recommend him, without hesitation, to any other school who wished to enrich their children’s experience of dance or enhance their school production."
