Dance Festival 2018

This year’s Dance Festival exhibited dancers from Year 7 through to 13, who came together once again to put on a remarkable and spirited display, truly showcasing the undeniable talent amidst the Chew Valley School students. Chew Valley School were also joined by dancers from Fae McIntyre’s classes, performing two brilliantly energetic routines including their rendition of ‘School of Rock’.

The audience members were presented with a spectacular assortment of dance styles, genres and techniques, including two breathtaking solos from Year 9 student Henry Hicks and Year 12 student Josh Pilgrim. The captivating ‘Burlesque’ performed by the Chew Valley Dance Company and an outstanding trio performed by Year 8 students Erin Golledge, Tia Radforth and Lucy Vowles also wowed the crowd. Other highlights included a Musical Theatre performance of the title song from Footloose by the Year 10 GCSE Dance class and 7:9 Dance Club’s vibrant Street Dance mash-up as well as exceptional exam work from both the GCSE and A Level Dance students.

I am is so thrilled with every single dancer who took part in the two nights - the commitment, hard work and aptitude of the students has filled me with immense pride. Well done Chew Valley Dancers!
