Students go around the globe in a World of Dance!
We are delighted to share photographs from ‘World of Dance’, the stunning production by the Charlotte Jacqueline School of Dance, hosted at Richmond School. Charlotte Porter, owner and former student, created the fabulous show to celebrate the diverse range of dance genres around the globe. The performance featured dancers from 3 to 20-years old, including nine students from Richmond School. We were only too happy to step in to help with a last-minute change of venue, as in true theatrical style – The Show must go on! Well done to: Alice Booth, Freya Ball, Emily Roberts, Evie Gill, Beth Butler, Ellen Stewart, James Montgomery, Emily Tennant and Daisy Pyrah.
Charlotte said:” I was so impressed with the tremendous performances by all our students. They have worked relentlessly to perfect their routines and this is to be admired as it is only recently that we have been able to resume our in-person classes.”
It was also wonderful to see Sophie Montgomery, alumna, with the musical theatre choir, who sang “I’d like to teach the world to sing” in what was a debut performance of the genre for the school. Taught and led by vocal coach Sophie, who accompanied the children on her guitar, the children also performed the song in Makaton, a nationally recognised form of sign language.
A huge thank you to Charlotte for giving this wonderful opportunity to our students at such a difficult time and for raising £200 from programme sales for the Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team – all donations go towards the upkeep of the team and their kit.
