A beautiful painting by year 11 student Jemima as part of her GCSE project based on ‘Performance’. It is painted on wood and her subject is one of her friends and one of our very talented dancers. She was inspired brilliantly by the work of the portrait artist Jonathen Yeo.
Year 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!
Congratulations to all the new members of Silver Dance Company and Junior Silver Dance Company.
On Thursday 5th May, our showcase of contemporary dance, Sprung, took place in the school hall.
The evening mainly consisted of the Year 11 GCSE Dance practical examination work, and also featured performances from the school dance clubs and Junior Dance Performance Group.
The showcase was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the outstanding GCSE Dance work from the examination that had taken place earlier in the day. The examiner commented on the high standard of all the work. The girls really did us all proud with their outstanding choreographies and performances.
