    That sounds like such a wonderful position! I'm interested in hearing about the "movement" portion of it. Are you teaching dance, or appreciation of music through movement?

    :DAw thanks for asking about it! It is dance, but it's co-taught with the PE teacher and the way they do it now is very exploratory. They are super interested in dance and creative movement at this school so they made it one of their specialist classes :D (It's a public school too!!) Anyways folk dance is a big passion/hobby of mine so I'm pretty excited to be given the time to incorporate it more
