Friesland students were this year selected again to perform at the county dance platform. This is the regional level of the annual national U.Dance competition. Three groups were entered and chosen to represent Erewash at the first stage competition our A Level Dance group, our GCSE Dance group and our KS3 Dance Club ‘FriesFusion’.
Following this, our GCSE Dance group were selected to go forward to the second stage of the competition, and performed on 24th February 2016 at Interface16, held at Déda. Our students were competing against other schools from across Derby city, as well as dance companies and performance groups.
Our students put on a very professional and high quality performance, due to exam commitments we can progress no further in the competition but the students received an abundance of praise and positive feedback from both the judges and from members of the audience – a true credit to Friesland and a fine example of the extremely high calibre of dance talent we have.
All three groups will feature in our 2016 Dance Show, which takes place Tuesday 17th and Thursday 19th March. Tickets are on sale now – £5 per person, available at breaktime from the Performing Arts Box Office
