Dance Live!

On Tuesday 6th February our Dance Live team (composed of nearly 100 students) competed at the Portsmouth Guildhall Theatre with their piece 'The Atta Girls'.

Nicknamed the Attagirls, our piece was based on the women of the Air Transport Auxiliary who were brought together to transport military aircraft to where they were needed. This unconventional crew flew approximately 415,000 hours and delivered more than 309,000 aircraft in WW2. Receiving very little training and facing huge risks, this incredible group of women demonstrated the extraordinary power of resilience and courage.

Our students performed beautifully, capturing the emotion and power of such an important theme and we are extremely proud of all them, including all of our stage crew and technical support. Although we didn't place this year, we did win the technical award and an award for our LED screen content.

We would like to thank the teachers: Miss Pegden, Mr Jenner, Miss Street, Miss Spight, Miss Coles and Miss Owens for accompanying us on the day, Sarah Smith for support with all our props, Mr Smith for making our Spitfire wings and Elliott Clark for support with our LED content. It really is a team effort and such a great experience for everyone involved. We are looking forward to coming back bigger and better next year!!
