Dance Showcase

Dance cleverbox

The School Dance Production is an annual tradition that goes back over 20 years. The show takes place in the autumn term and usually has over 100 girls and boys performing or running back stage, lighting and sound. Preparation starts during the Summer term with the Year 13 students working up ideas and running auditions.

There is a new theme every year and all forms of dance are encouraged and shown. Each year group has its own dance with additional groups created around styles. All the technical aspects are run by the students, as is the whole evening from box office to back stage. Local primary schools are invited to the school to watch the dress rehearsal and are always an enthusiastic audience. The dance show is always a highlight of the School calendar, not just for the performances, but how the students, with support from the PE, Drama and Music departments, develop a whole raft of life skills and character traits that help support their school life and their time after completing their education.

Over recent years, many of the students have gone on to have careers on and behind the stage.
