North Shields Dance Festival

by Olivia Smith, Year 10

On the 26th and 27th of February, students from Year 8 to Year 13 took part in an extraordinary display of dance at the Parks, all focusing on the theme ‘The Living World.’ We showed variations of the theme, including elements, seasons and the cycle of life. Each year performed with extravagance and showed how the theme could be interpreted in so many ways. Our Gifted and Talented students also performed a piece from the musical ‘Cats.’  Overall the festival was a great success, apart from the final day being cancelled because of the snow! Well done to all involved!
