Friesland’s very talented dancers produced two fantastic evenings of high quality and entertaining dance to sell out audiences for the annual Dance Show. As usual, the evenings contained a variety of performances and styles of dance, with performers spanning from year 1 and 4 students from Ladycross and Firfield primary schools – who had been working with Mrs York last term – to our KS3 dance club, ‘FriesFusion’, GCSE and A Level dance students.
For our Y13 dancers, this was their final performance both before their examination the following day and at Friesland. Many of them have applied and been auditioning for places at prestigious dance schools, and their incredibly professional and emotive pieces – including their group performance ‘Take Me to Church’ – are a testament to their hard work and highlight just how talented they are. We wish them all the best as they move on from life at Friesland.
For the rest of our A Level and Y11 dancers, the dance show provided a final opportunity to practice and finesse their pieces ready for their examinations just after the dance show. For our KS3 dance club students, it was final chance to perform their two pieces to audiences filled with their friends and family, following on from their selection to the county dance platform earlier in the year.
Our primary school students performed brilliantly – Ladycross performing ‘The Bear Necessities’, appropriately dressed as monkeys from the jungle; and Firfield performing a ‘60s inspired piece ‘Hand Jive’. We look forward to doing more work with our local primary schools in our upcoming performing arts mornings.
