Dance Moves!!!!

Last week Andrew and Mateo (Year 8) came to hang out with Room 4 (Year 1).
We were using our technology gadgets (ipads) to have fun and create something.
The boys taught Room 4 how to access Garage Band and how to create some music.

Well, after that, we thought why not go to the next level and film someone dancing to the music that Andrew created in garageband.

Look at the awesome result. . .
A big thanks to Andrew K(songwriter)  and Mateo T (Director of photography) and of course the star performer - Viliami!

Enjoy watching. . .
