GCSE Dance residential – summary

Dance Residential TripYear 10 dancers have just returned from a brilliant dance trip to the Conway Centre, Angelsey. The weekend, run by Homegrown Dance Theatre, included dance workshops on all aspects of GCSE Dance. Students from schools across the country learnt repertoire from professional dances on the GCSE anthology, choreographed dances and learnt 2 of the set phrases. A great weekend was had by all and we are all very tired now! See more photos here:

 

Sunday morning and home time

This morning, dancers have learnt the set phrase ‘shift’ and created performance pieces using the poem ‘I am meth’ as a stimulus. 

We are so impressed with how hard all of them have worked this weekend; they have put 100% into every workshop. We now have lots of ideas and rep ready to use in GCSE dance lessons back at school. 

11 tired dancers all heading home…thanks for a great weekend everyone xx 

Saturday night…

Year 10 had choreography workshops right up till 9pm last night! They created dances based on 3 action words. Then the evening entertainment was….MORE dancing at the disco! 

Traditions

It wouldn’t be a AGGS dance residential without our ‘jumping off the wall’ photo! We may even have added a new ‘in the tree’ tradition!

Saturday Dance residential

Year 10 have had a very busy day participating in workshops with Boy Blue and creating dances in the style of A Linha Curva and Artificial Things. They have also learnt the set phrase ‘Flux’. They are currently creating choreographies with Home grown Dance Theatre. 

Boy Blue Workshop

Group 1 have been getting their maths heads on this morning! They’ve been enjoying a fabulous workshop with Yolanda from Boy Blue Entertainment. They’ve worked incredibly hard learning the Ninja run from Emancipation of Expressionism.
