Our fantastic dance team entered a competition recently which was being run by Gateshead SSP in conjunction with Disney on Ice and Capital Radio to perform at the Metro Centre. The theme was Resilience, and Mr Breheny worked with the group to choreograph a new dance routine and sent a movie of the performance to the organisers. Not long after, we were thrilled to find out that we had been chosen to perform at the Metro Centre in the final. Everyone had a great day out and enjoyed the chance to perform in front of the public, representing the school fantastically well. To make the day even better, we were judged by the panel as the winners of the competition, and because of that the squad brought home a fantastic Disney trophy and four tickets each to Disney on Ice at the Metro Radio Arena later this year. The squad were also asked to perform at the Gateshead SSP Awards at Dryden Centre in July. This was a great recognition of all of the hard work and talent within the group, and reflected our unbiased belief that we were clearly the best school at the Gateshead dance festival at the Sage.
As many of our group are leaving for their next schools this month, it was a great way to bow out, especially after taking part in the festival for many years. I’m sure we will continue to see many of them at the Sage in future years as they represent their Secondary schools.
Well done everyone!
