Cardiff schoolchildren learnt some electrifying dance moves by TV talent show stars, Diversity, as part of British Gas’ Generation Green competition.
Pupils from Radyr Primary took part in a street-dance master class at Diversity’s Essex studio on Tuesday (26th April), as part of a prize for winning their school an energy makeover worth up to £50,000.
Last summer, the youngsters were crowned winners in the Generation Green Welsh final.
During the event, they had carried out an energy-inspired dance, judged by Diversity’s Jordan and Perri, who awarded them points for their creativity, as well as the amount of energy they created on a special dance mat.
As Jordan and Perri were so impressed with the children’s routine, they invited them to their Essex dance studio, where they were shown how to ‘body-pop’ as well as other high-energy moves.
Catrin, a pupil at Radyr Primary School, said: “The makeover will be great it’ll help us save even more energy. We already have the green flag for being an Eco school.”
Jordan and Perri added: “We were blown away by how much energy the kids had! We were so impressed by their routine at the Generation Green final, we had to get Radyr Primary School along to our studio to learn some Diversity-style moves.
“It was great to see all the kids grow in such a short time and hope to hear from them in the future!”
British Gas will begin the school’s energy makeover later this year. It will be transformed with the latest energy-saving technology, which may include solar panels and LED lighting. The makeover could save the school up to £7,000 a year on its fuel bills.
