Last weekend Harwich and Dovercourt High School took Colchester by storm as part of the Arts Festival ‘Estival Festival’. Year 10 students, Ryan Cockerline, Paris Lands, Tonicha Mathiewson and Demi Christoloudou took the lead in a Dance performance. Workshops also took place with Year 9 students Shannon O’Connor Jacobs, Yazmin Smith and Emily Lowbridge and two primary school students Sam and Dylan Clapser from our launch of the Dance Connect programme which Two Village and other primary schools in the local area have been attending.
They opened the festival with their flash mob style performance as part of their Silver Arts Award. They were then involved in 1:1 workshops with the public in the gallery studios. They rehearsed and performed from 9.30am on Saturday 20th June until 3.00pm that afternoon. Head of Learning and Participation Judith Merritt at First Site Gallery was delighted with their presence at the event.
Their behaviour and effort was fantastic. They represented the school to the community at the highest of levels. Images attached. BIG-TOWN-DANCE.pdf (262 downloads)
