The Greatest Dancer – Grace S 10-3

Unfortunately, Vale’s time on the Greatest Dancer has now come to an end as they didn’t get through this week. You could watch their performance this week on BBC iplayer. They were the 2nd performance of the evening.

What an amazing achievement for Grace and her team to get to the last 7 acts and a fantastic experience to be involved in the process and all those live shows.

They will have one last chance to perform in the live final, with all 12 of the final acts, on Saturday 7th March on BBC1. They have also been asked to appear on Blue Peter!

Grace, with her dance school, is down to the final 12 dance groups in BBC1’s The Greatest Dancer! She is on Team Oti.
This Saturday, all 12 groups will perform new dances in the live challenge show. Who goes through each week is now down to the public vote, and 2 groups go home every Saturday. Fingers crossed Grace stays in the competition for as long as possible. They really deserve this amazing opportunity.

Mimi and the Mountain Dragon, BBC 1 Boxing Day 3.20pm

If you would like to be entranced by a beautiful new animated version of Michael Morpurgo’s children’s story Mimi and the Mountain Dragon’, please tune in to BBC 1 on Boxing Day at 3.20pm.

Esther G in 8-1 has been sworn to secrecy about this project up until a few weeks ago. She was chosen to record the singing voice of Mimi as part of her role singing in the Halle Childrens’ Choir.

Her sister, Grace G in Y9 and also Olivia H in Y8 are also singing in the other recorded sections as part of the Halle choir.

The animation was aired on Tuesday on R3 on In tune, to promote the Boxing Day showing: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000cclk

Rachel Portman, who wrote the music, is interviewed. If you scroll down and listen from 23 – 26 mins, she talks about Esther and the clip of her singing is included. It really is an amazing accolade to be chosen to sing for something this high profile and Esther is very humble about this and a stalwart member of AGGS Junior and Chamber choirs here.

We are very proud of them well done!
