On Monday 8th July, Year 8’s excitedly filed into the main hall and took our seats, ready to enjoy dance interform. We had spent the last few weeks working together in our forms – aided greatly by the dance teachers – to plan, choreograph, film, edit and produce a dance video based on the theme ‘Movies’. Now it was time to watch the final piece and see how the others forms had done.
8-1 was shown first with a fun and upbeat routine to Pitch Perfect. Then was 8-2 with a magical dance to Aladdin which was really enhanced by some wonderful edits. 8-3 came next with a routine set to Mulan, incorporating lots of different dance styles and showing everyone’s talents. An exceptional routine to James Bond: Skyfall by 8-4 followed. The dance was incredible and emotion shone through with the use of coloured lighting in the drama studio. 8-5’s energetic dance to Mama Mia has everyone clapping and singing along to their moves. Lastly, 8-6 showed their amazing routine to The Greatest Showman with groups and individuals showing off their many talents in a well edited video. Once we had watched all the entries, the judges took the time to decide upon a winner. In 3rd place was 8-5 with Mama Mia, 2nd went to 8-4 with their Skyfall routine and the Year Eight dance interform champions 2019 are 8-6 with the Greatest Showman!
It was a lovely afternoon celebrating people’s talents which the whole of year eight thoroughly enjoyed. Special thanks go to Miss Ansty, Mrs Collinson and Miss Godding for helping to put together the dances and to Mrs Walker and Mrs Cleary for judging the entries.
