Dance Oscars – 26th June 2019
In our biennial show at the Brindley Theatre on the 26th June, we took 120 performers to perform a variety show that included Dance, Drama and Musical theatre. The performances ranged from extra-curricular dance clubs, students’ own choreographies, BTEC Dance exam work, extra-curricular drama work and BTEC Musical Theatre exam work. We also invited the local ‘AT School of Dance’ to take part as two thirds of the dance department work there as well, with many Bridgewater students dancing there in their own time.
We had the pleasure of rehearsing for the day at the theatre, where students acted with complete professionalism throughout. The day was jam-packed with technical and dress rehearsals. Students had the opportunity to watch others perform as well as gaining the experience of being in a theatre and staging a show for a day.
The show went without a hitch with all students managing themselves perfectly. From the many jokes from our BTEC Musical Theatre presenters to the talented dancers on stage, the event really did show how talented our students at Bridgewater are. The whole of the EPA faculty was very proud of what was achieved. The only thing to worry about now is how to top it in the next one!
A huge well done to all of the performers. You really did Bridgewater proud!
