PUPILS at Monmouth School for Girls have used dance to teach important lessons about life.

The students are using the medium to highlight how being materialistic and focusing on the wrong things can lead to rocky foundations and problems.

Set to Tilted by Christine and the Queens, materialism is represented by fur jackets in the piece.

The idea for the routine's message came from the school chaplain, Reverend Clifford Swartz.

“Our choices can reflect being ruled by our desires rather than the freedom God longs to give,” he said.

Head of dance Rhyan Parry said: “There is a realisation that it is important to get things in perspective, strike a balance and know how to make sensible choices.

“The lyrics of the song also help to strengthen this important message.”
