A dance school has released two free dance routines for primary school teachers and pupils to get to grips with over the festive holidays so they can help keep the Christmas spirit alive.

Primary Dance UK, based in Burnley and Pendle, released the routines via YouTube earlier this week, and the lessons feature an easy to follow routine to Last Christmas by Cascada and a harder routine to Eight Days of Christmas by Destiny's Child.

Sarah Hawthorne Primary Dance UK founder feels the videos may help to keep primary school pupils active and engaged during the Christmas period, which is due to be a difficult time for many families.

She said: "We understand that a lot of teachers and pupils are having a tough time during the run-up to Christmas this year.

"So, we wanted to continue to support them by offering two Christmas dance lessons by Yasmin Roberts, who is one of our extremely talented choreographers.

"I'm sure the videos will provide a lot of fun for pupils during their Christmas break."

The videos are available to the public via the YouTube links below.
