Gym and Dance Display 2020
Congratulations to nearly two hundred students who took part in the annual Gym and Dance Display, which was held in the Barbirolli Hall on Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th February 2020.
The students performed twenty-five pieces including Vaulting, Trampette work, Floor gymnastics, team gymnastics, Contemporary dance, Street dance, Lyrical, Bollywood and Modern dance.
The Elite Dance girls' team showcased a snippet of the routine that they will perform at the Hertfordshire Schools' Gala, which will be held at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 8th March. The team have been selected to open the show from a shortlist of many other local schools.
PE teacher and Gym and Dance Display Organiser Miss Tucker said, ‘The students have worked extremely hard since September to learn, improve and perfect all of these routines ready for the show. The enthusiasm and motivation that each student has brought to the Gym and Dance has been phenomenal. A massive well done to everyone who has taken part!’
Miss Tucker extended thanks to Sixth form helpers: Kitty Sharland, Grace Barrett, Molly Kay, Sasha Thompson, Ben Matthews and Ben Edwards, all of whom made an invaluable contribution towards the organisation and running of the event.
The Lighting team, comprising of Carl Taylor, Chris Ayyildiz and Chip Nicholas, were also praised for their help. Miss Tucker said, ‘Their standard and level of expertise helped to bring the show to life.’
Miss Tucker is grateful to all the parents who supported the production in many ways, including helping to make and provide costumes.
Last, but not least, well done to all the performers and to Miss Tucker and fellow staff for all their hard work in creating such a wonderful spectacle!
