Senior Spotlights: A Dance Extravaganza
30 January 2024 - All
Senior Spotlights is always a memorable event in the School calendar. The event showcases a combination of choreography from Dance teachers, Dance Captains, and entries from the Choreography Challenge. This year, we saw an impressive selection of dance styles ranging from classical ballet to street dance, tap to lyrical, and contemporary to musical theatre. There was something for everyone to enjoy!
To enhance the choreography on show, pupils were fitted with beautiful costumes with lots of sparkle and many costume changes as girls participated in numerous different pieces. The whole cast finale, of which the audience showed great appreciation, ended with confetti cannons and cheers from the parents and girls in the audience.
Pieces on the night included the Clarence Academy dancing to a Barbie medley, a ballet solo and tap solo, the Street Company dancing to Do I Have Your Attention? And the Musical Theatre Company performing to a Mamma Mia medley.
Thank you to Mr Grace and Mr Pattenden for the fabulous lights and effects used throughout the performances and pupils and staff supporting the event from start to finish. Congratulations to the performers and Dance captains on a wonderful show, and we are very much looking forward to the Junior Spotlights in May.
Dance is a very popular subject amongst the pupils with an extensive extra-curricular provision led by dance specialists for individual and group lessons as well as for fitness. Within the Sports Centre, girls have access to the dedicated dance studio as well as smaller practice areas. Along with Spotlights, other performance opportunities include the House Dance Competition and Dove Day.
