Dauntsey’s Dancing Legends

Published by Dauntsey's on Wednesday 1st of February 2023

More than 200 pupils took to the stage this term for Dauntsey’s annual Lower School Dance Show.  It was an entertaining and uplifting evening as pupils performed a total of 17 dances, based around the theme of ‘Legends’.  The performances showcased a number of different dance genres – classical, street dance, contemporary and more – and pupils performed with confidence, energy and enthusiasm, showcasing all they have learnt since the start of the school year.

The show was opened by the Lower School Dance Company who performed an upbeat and impressive dance to ‘Another one bites the dust’, there was then a playful tribute to the Royal Family and Queen Elizabeth II, the Boys Dance Club took the audience back to the 80s with a slickly choreographed performance to ‘Beat It’ and the Third Form Dance Company impressed with a superb display of talent and passion.

Antony Edwards, Head of Dance at Dauntsey’s said:

“The annual Dance Show requires all of our First Form and Second Form to perform – many of the pupils in the First Form may not have had any previous dance experience, so to see them up on the stage, performing in front of a large audience is incredible.  All of the pupils fully embraced this opportunity, getting involved in the choreography and really thinking about how we could bring the theme of legends to life.  It was a fantastic show and I am so proud of them all.”

A parent who attended the show said:

“Since September I have watched my son develop confidence and a love and appreciation of dance and it was incredible to see that all come together on stage.  The excitement and energy from all of the pupils was just brilliant – what a lot of talent in one room!”

At Dauntsey’s, pupils can take Dance as a GCSE and A Level option, with street, jazz, contemporary and ballet all being popular studies.
