In February every year we hold our annual Movement Festival. Over 200 pupils take part each year in a range of dance, cheerleading and gymnastics performances in a revue style show. Students can take part in large group routines and they also get the chance to audition their own small group pieces which they can choreograph themselves.
Every routine has a theme which the movement, costume, set and lighting all reflect. The dance pieces cover a number of dance styles including jazz, ballet, tap, contemporary and street dance while cheerleading routines cover tumbling, stunts, dance and jumps. To accompany the evening, singers and musicians perform during the interval and sports leaders take part in ushering duties.
It is always a great week during which students build relationships with their peers and staff and develop personal skills while getting the opportunity to perform in front of an audience.
