It’s been a busy end of term for the Dance Department!!
KS4 and KS5 Exam Showcases
On Tuesday 22nd March we finally had a chance to showcase our amazing GCSE and A Level work in our 2 annual Exam Showcases! Our Year 11 and 13 students showed off their amazing performances and choreographies to an impressed audience.
Flux Dance Company
On Thursday 24th March we were very fortunate to be able to welcome Flux Dance Company to St Marylebone School! Flux is the 3rd Year Dance Company connected to the BA programme of study at Trinity Laban Conservatoire for Music and Dance. Laban is a specialist college for Dance education at Degree level, where several of our SMS alumni have trained or are currently training.
The dance company performed 2 pieces for our students in the double bill. This was followed by a Question and Answer session where the audience got a chance to ask questions about the pieces, the life of a dancer and studying Dance at Degree level.
It was very inspirational for our Dance students to see some stunning performances of interesting and unique choreographies. Thank you to the dancers and the staff from Flux for making this possible, and for all the support from our SMS staff!
A Level Exam
On Wednesday 30th March we completed our final practical exams for this year, with our brilliant A Level students filming their choreographies, solo and trio performances. The Year 13 students have worked hard to prepare for this exam, and we are in particular grateful for the energy and commitment of their dancers in their group pieces. We hope the AQA examiner will be impressed with the work you have produced. You should be very proud of everything you have achieved.
