Ratton Stompers’ passion for art

The pupils got into the beat.
The pupils got into the beat.

They have only been back at school for a couple of weeks but already Ratton Stompers are out and about sharing their passion and skill for the unique art form which combines dance, drama and music, creating scenes and rhythms with body percussion and recycled junk.

The students from Ratton School are working with a stomp club from the Lindfield Special School and Year 5 Pupils at Ocklynge School teaching basic stomp rhythms and also developing full routines.

They regularly run workshops and clubs at other schools and this year were rewarded with their own workshop with an Ex Stomp Cast member with more than 50 students taking part.

A Stomp Show will be held in the School Hall on Tuesday October 23 at 6.15pm and tickets are available from the school for £2.
