Ten Pieces and The Nutcracker - Live Lesson
Get creative with classical music
This Ten Pieces Live Lesson for 7-11s is full of dance, movement and characterisation.
It was created in collaboration with the Royal Opera House and The Royal Ballet School, and shows pupils how to create their own original dance moves, inspired by Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker.
This Live Lesson is presented by CBBC’s Naomi Wilkinson and Karim Zeroual with guest experts Liz Foster, a dance practitioner and lecturer and David Pickering, teacher and former soloist of The Royal Ballet.
This lesson was first streamed live in 2017 and we are no longer reviewing emails and messages from schools for inclusion in the lesson or on the page.
