The dance department have been working with students from Year 7-13 since January to create this year’s annual dance show titled ‘Fully Charged’. The Astor students have been preparing for the show and raising money for their own costumes by arranging bake sales, clothes sales, film nights, as well as learning plenty of routines!
The idea was to have a direct link to technology throughout the pieces and Rebound (Astor’s in-house Dance Company) opened the show on Wednesday 18th June, flanked by a stunning display of pyrotechnics and performed a ‘Great Gatsby’ inspired number ‘A Little Party Never Hurt Nobody’.
Solo, trio and group numbers were also performed using lasers, projections and confetti cannons teamed with a plethora of dance styles ranging from Contemporary to African dance.
Mrs Chamberlain, Miss Cloke and Miss Innes, who collaboratively directed the show, were overwhelmed with positive feedback and were so proud of how well the students performed. They would also like to thank all the staff who generously donated their time to ensure the technical aspects of the show ran smoothly. The students have worked incredibly hard with one member of the audience stating ‘the dance shows at Astor get better every year’ and preparations are already underway for next year’s show. Well done Astor!
