Dauntsey's Dance Show is a Hit

Published Wednesday 28th of January 2015 07:07:40 PM

A group of more than 240 pupils from Dauntsey's School took part in the School's much anticipated annual Dance Show this week. The pupils demonstrated the versatility of their skills through a range of dance styles including cheerleading, contemporary, musical theatre, commercial and street dance.

Act One saw all First and Second Form pupils perform routines learnt in curriculum lessons. The theme was 'as seen on screen' with dances inspired by films such as Grease, Harry Potter, Ghostbusters and Avatar. The Act concluded with the audience being invited to the glittering award ceremony, the 'D.A.F.T.As'.

Act Two was performed by pupils who attend the numerous dance clubs offered by the School outside lessons. The dancers ranged from the First Form right through to the Upper Sixth. A number of creative dances were performed in a wide range of genres, a particular highlight being the elite Jazz Group, Dauntless, who performed a spectacular number based on 'The Hunger Games'.

Kirsty Glynn, Dauntsey's Head of Dance, said:
'The pupils worked very hard last term to prepare for the show and delivered a thrilling evening full of energy and excitement. It was very rewarding to see so many pupils from different year groups working together and having so much fun on stage.'
