DRESS classy, dance cheesy - that's the plan for Year 6 student Mason Taylor.

The St Francis Primary School student and five of his classmates have updated the Nutbush to the tunes of South Korean rapper Psy's song Gangnam Style.

"We got to turn a non-locomotive dance to a locomotive dance," fellow student Caoimhe O'Callaghan said.

Under the tutelage of music teacher Anne Louise Dooley, Years 6 and 7 students are busy working in small groups using dance elements to modify a set movement sequence.

The activity is part of the school's dance strand in its arts curriculum, and the students will perform their dances in week four.

"We got to know each other better," Lauren Ruthenberg said.

One of the groups in 6G is performing Want You Back by Cher Lloyd, and although the students have already spent a lot of time planning the choreography, they will now be working on their timing.
