Dance East Workshops February 2023

Throughout February, our pupils were lucky enough to be invited to take part in a series of workshops delivered by a professional dancer from Dance East here at Hylands School.

The sessions, which ran as extracurricular, focussed on Dance technique and developing choreographic skills. Pupils from Years 7- 11 attended and benefitted from focussed sessions which enhanced the pupils choreographic skills, this was particularly beneficial for our Year 11 Dancers ahead of their final examination in April. Pupils worked in small groups on developing motifs and had the opportunity to perform these weekly. It was great to see the dedication, passion and commitment to Dance demonstrated by our pupils. Those involved were encouraged to attend the Dance East auditions for a place on the CATS programme (Centre of Advanced Training) which ran during the February half term break.
