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:

As we wanted the name to link to our school name, AGGS, we have picked Silver Dance company as Ag is the chemical symbol for Silver!

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

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!
