County Dance Festival 2017

On Tuesday 14 March the senior dancers represented the school, superbly, at the Hertfordshire Schools’ County Dance festival. The festival is a celebration of dance in primary, special and secondary schools. They were one of twenty four schools who worked hard to create the festival in one day, including a matinee and an evening performance.

This year’s theme was “Read all about it” where the dances had to reflect the content of newspapers or magazines. Choreographers Lydia Grinsted Tate and Shauna Lils cleverly combined this year’s gym and dance display theme: “Beaumont Brits” with “Read all about it” by basing the dance on the Beatles song “A Day in the Life”. The first two verses were inspired by the story of Tara Browne, the 21-year-old heir to the Guinness fortune. A major newspaper story in 1966.

Miss Dolan and Mrs RiggottJones were very proud of their performance and would like to thank them again for their enthusiasm during the day.
