Annual SHS Dance Showcase takes place
On Thursday 14th and Friday 15th January pupils from SHS entertained two capacity crowds with a mixture of contemporary and modern dances in the annual Dance Showcase ‘The Movies’ 2016.
The Showcase of Dance acts as a platform where students of all ages with an interest in dance can exhibit their work to an invited audience. This year budding dancers and choreographers took inspiration from ‘The Movies’ for their choreography.
Dances were inspired by firms such as; Charlie Chaplin, Alice in Wonderland, Pirates of the Caribbean, Chicago and many more across the thirty seven dances that took place. Additionally audience members were entertained by the witticisms of Stamford School drama students Michael Jordan and James Pickering (both Y13) who acted as event comperes.
Students of all experiences were able to perform dances they have choreographed at home and at after school clubs to an invited audience. Some of the winning dances from the recent ‘House dance competition’ also featured in the show. The event continues to grow in numbers and popularity after this year’s incredible tally of seventy two participating dancers.
Nicola Watson, the Dance Showcase Coordinator, said; “The students have worked tremendously hard and produced two stunning performances, which were a delight to watch. They have demonstrated the wealth of dancing talent that exists at the Stamford Endowed Schools and I am incredibly proud of the student’s achievements.”
