Chew Valley Dance Festival 2017

Dancers from across the Chew Valley once again came together to put on an impressive and energetic display of dance in the annual Chew Valley Dance Festival. 150 Chew Valley School students were joined by enthusiastic children from Chew Magna Primary, Chew Stoke Primary, Dundry Primary, Bishop Sutton Primary, Stanton Drew Primary, East Harptree Primary and Ubley Primary, as well as dancers from Rhythm ‘n’ Shoes and Fae McIntyre’s classes.

The audience members were treated to an exciting array of dance styles and genres including a beautiful duet from Year 8 students Henry Hicks and Bow Masters, a Musical Theatre performance of ‘You can’t stop the Beat’ from Hairspray by the Year 10 GCSE Dance class and a return of the magical ‘Wonderland’ performed by the Chew Valley Dance Company. Other praise worthy performances include the Street Dance clubs’ ‘Thriller’ and exam work from the GCSE and A level Dance students.

Mrs Loynton is extremely proud of every dancer who took part in the 6 sold out shows, across four evenings and was particularly impressed with the professionalism and commitment that was on display.
