On the 29th and 30th November, thirty dance students travelled to London for the annual West End experience.  Students got to watch the amazing Aladdin and Dreamgirls which wowed with great music, extravagant sets and costumes and out of this world dancing.  They then go the opportunity to do a workshop with cast members from each show at the famous Pineapple Studios. 

In the Dreamgirls workshop, the dancers learnt a showgirl style routine to ‘One Night Only’ and in the Aladdin workshop they completed the audition routine to be able to perform in the show; all students did an outstanding job following and picking up these professional standard numbers.

In addition to these musical activities, students also went on a backstage tour at the Theatre Royal on Drury Lane where they learnt about the history of the theatre and how the theatre works.
Finally, the trip was finished off with a visit to Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park; the dance students rode theme park rides and got in the festive spirit with a range of Christmas activities while they were there.  Overall, it was a wonderful trip and we are already looking forward to next year’s!
