On Thursday 18 April, 15 students travelled to London to watch The Royal Ballet perform 'Swan Lake' at the Royal Opera House.

This was an absolutely wonderful experience for all involved, the students were in awe of the performance and the theatre.

On Monday and Tuesday, the dance department hosted the annual Primary Dance Festival. This was an opportunity for 10 different primary schools in the area to come together and celebrate dance. The feedback has been wonderful and we are already looking forward to next year!

A massive well done to the cast of Sweeney Todd for their outstanding talent during the show last week, as well as for the hard work they dedicated during the last 6 months. We are so proud of what you achieved!

Sadly, a recent withdrawal from the cast has meant that a key role is unable to be fulfilled. The licensing company has offered us the alternative of performing ‘Sweeney Todd: Concert Edition’. This means that a number of the scenes are removed from the show, however the remaining scenes will be performed as originally intended.

We hope you can understand that although this is not an ideal situation, the Performing Arts Department and cast have worked hard to make adaptions to show off the brilliant work and talent.

Any tickets purchased will still remain valid. We hope that you will still support the production and the amazing work from the students/staff.

Auditions for the dance show will be on 28th February, but as the theme is 'One Night in Vegas', the artist you choose must have performed in Las Vegas. You can perform a solo/duet/group - and this can be in your own forms or a mixture of form groups. You will need at least a minute’s worth of choreography to show, so we can get an idea for the piece.

Register your interest with a member of the dance department.

On Thursday 25th January, students from Astor's dance department went to the Marlowe Theatre to experience a wonderful performance by one of their A level Practitioners, Matthew Bourne. The group watched the stunning piece 'Edward Scissorhands' and came away feeling inspired by the choreography, set and costumes.
