Hi,

together with Susan Elena (fireboxdancetheatre.co.uk) I am right now part of an exciting project organised by Anna Ramsay to create screendance videos for Big in Falkirk (http://www.biginfalkirk.com/).

It's great fun with the 22 kids who are between 6-12years old. The boys and girls are super energetic and totally into dance and keen to put something together for the videos. The moment they know the camera is rolling they are completely focused and total pros!

However, what absolutely positively surprised me was that when we showed them some DVDs as part of the introduction to screendance they absolutely understood how the digital effects were done and could even explain most of them. Wow, the next generation grows up with such a different understanding and approach to the digital world! But saying this, the group of youngster made very quickly clear to us that although they enjoy watching the dance scenes from "Step Up", they actually want to get up and make their own and be active rather than passively sit around and stare at a screen. I love this!

Looking forward to the next couple of days!

Hi Sabine,

I like your quote:

"they actually want to get up and make their own and be active rather than passively sit around and stare at a screen. I love this!"

I just tweeted about it.

Best,
