End of Summer Term 201717/07/17
We are now nearing completion of the academic year and I thought this would be a good opportunity to look back over the year and look forward to next year.Read More...
Falmouth School teamed up with Victoria’s Dance Academy for the second year to host ‘Dance Partners’, a showcase collaboration of the finest work from both groups of students. Tickets were in high demand leading up to the show, with a sold out crowd of over 200 packing into the main school hall for the performance.
With a diverse field of performers ranging from primary school students to Falmouth College Year 13 students, the audience were treated to an exciting variety of routines. The night started with year seven and eight students take on ‘Nicest Kids in Town’ from Hairspray, to get the audience in the mood, followed by a modern piece from Year 10 to Emeli Sande’s ‘Hurts’.
There was a playful rendition of Matilda from the Grade two tap group and an award winning piece from Lauren Vosper and Aimee Wandless before the Year 9 BTEC group brought high tempo and energy to proceedings with ‘Find Me’. The commercial group wowed the audience with superb visuals in ‘Skyscraper’ before some students as young as four performed ‘A Whole New World’.
Year seven and eight had their camouflage gear at the ready for ‘Salute’, before Chloe Hunt and Katie Pewsey performed a successful audition piece before they go to study at University. There was still time for some fantastic performances, including an Annie medley for the Junior Theatre Group and an excellent duet from Imogen Steele and Aimee Wandless.
There were some final performances at Falmouth School for departing Year 13 students in the pointe group, who showcased an old classic ‘A Tale as Old as Time’. The final piece of the show though, was the much anticipated performance from the Year 10 group who secured silver at the Cornwall School Games with ‘V4W’ – a fitting end to a fantastic show.
Dance teacher at Falmouth School Miss Roberts said “Thank you to the staff at Falmouth School for making tonight happen and of course to Victoria for her wonderful contribution. Most of all I have to thank the wonderful students, who have shown such passion and dedication – there wouldn’t be a show without them.”
