YEAR 8 ROUNDERS

Practice will still be on tonight even if the weather is bad. We will go inside to train. They have re-scheduled our Year 8 Tournament to this Thursday the 30th of June. VERY IMPORTANT we will provide transport there, but if you are selected, we will ask if you can arrange your own transport home. The tournament will be based in Leamington, venue to be confirmed.

Dance Production 2022

It’s Back!

Dance Production will be returning to the stage in December 2022, and we want to see “Everybody dance!”

We need your help to make it bigger and better than ever before. Get your choreography hats on and create a routine that is unique, polished and performed to the best of your ability ready for the auditions in October.

We’re looking for variety;  from solos to groups and styles from ballet to acro. 

All ages are welcome to audition. GCSE PE students in year 9/10 who would be assessed in dance will be expected to enter a piece as this is a fantastic opportunity to be assessed and filmed on stage. 

If any key stage 4 or 5 students are interested in supporting and choreographing a routine for younger students please email Mrs Turton directly  (warman.l@welearn365.com) or speak to Mrs Mellor.

Year 8 Rounders

BIG well done to all the year 8 Rounders girls who have shown amazing commitment to training. The number at training is going up & up each week which is great to see. We are going to have a brilliant squad. See you there next week girls.

Warwick Arts Centre Trip

On Wednesday night, Year 8 Dance arts award students visited Warwick arts Centre to watch a performance by the Dance company Motionhouse.

The students were impressed with the talent and strength of the dancers and motivated to have a go themselves!

A great night had by all!
