Dauntsey’s annual Lower School Dance Show, around the theme of ‘Legends’, saw some 200 pupils take to the stage

Dauntsey’s annual Lower School Dance Show saw some 200 pupils take to the stage to show off their dance moves and choreography skills, working with he theme of ‘Legends’. The performances showcased dance genres, including classical, street and contemporary.Highlights included an upbeat dance to ‘Another one bites the dust’, a playful tribute to the Royal Family and a slickly choreographed performance to ‘Beat It’.

Head of Dance Antony Edwards says: “The annual Dance Show requires all of our First Form and Second Form to perform – many of the pupils in the First Form may not have had any previous dance experience, so to see them up on the stage, performing in front of a large audience is incredible. All of the pupils fully embraced this opportunity, getting involved in the choreography and really thinking about how we could bring the theme of legends to life.  It was a fantastic show and I am so proud of them all”.

Dauntsey’s pupils can take Dance at GCSE and A level, with street, jazz, contemporary and ballet all being popular among pupils at the Wiltshire day and boarding school.
