Afternoon of dance - Hurstpierpoint College Hurstpierpoint College

Afternoon of dance

Last week, over 80 Pre-Prep and Prep School pupils took part in an afternoon of dance in the New Bury Theatre.

The theme this year was Dancing through the decades with each class performing a dance ranging from the 1920’s right through to 2021. Reception were sent back in time to the 1920’s and in a flurry of fast feet and swaying arms, performed the Charleston. Year 1 went fast forward to the 1950’s, performing an energetic rock and roll routine to Rock around the Clock. Next stop, the Year 2 class arrived in the glitzy and glamorous 1970’s, dancing to the hit Saturday night fever. The ballerinas performed a selection of set exercises and dances from the Royal Academy of Dance examination syllabus to demonstrate the progression through the grades from Pre-Primary to Grade 3.

A huge well done to all the pupils, they worked so hard and performed brilliantly. I am so pleased that despite the circumstances, our children had an opportunity to perform this year. Thank you to all the staff and parents for their continued support with this wonderful event Carla Dilley, Head of Pre-Prep PE/Teacher of Dance
