25 February 2019
Congratulations to our students for competing in their first dance competition on Monday 25 February at the Alexandra Theatre, Birmingham. Students were in the second round of The Great Big Dance Off – the regional heat, which was an incredible standard! 16 schools competed in the Key Stage 3 competition which had a real mix of experience with Years 7,8 & 9 students competing including some with dance company training too.
Hampton Gardens raised the roof with their performance of contemporaryand street dance with choreography based on ‘the day-to-day difficulties of being a teenager ‘growing up’. The battles we face with friendship groups, families and school pressures. We love to dance it makes us feel free and happy especially when performing as a team, we forget our worries and enjoy shining on stage!’
We placed 7th overall and the school is very proud of their amazing achievement!
