No Fear Playground Chant Re-invented

  The Street Ace Group from William Davis played around with a playground chant written by Shelley Pomeroy encouraging self-belief, fearlessness and an understanding that mistakes should be celebrated. The rap provided a framework for improvisation using body percussion, speech and movements from the children's culture i.e. street dancing. The children were specifically chosen for a project led by Shelley, as they receive additional support with their speech and language development in school. For some, it was their first school trip. For all of them, it was their first performance in a public arena.
