Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival
On Saturday 16th November a group of 10 talented dancers from Selby High School took to the stage to take part in the Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival at Central Hall, University of York. The dancers had been working incredibly hard, rehearsing at lunchtime and after school since the summer and were feeling ready to perform and share their dance piece at this spectacular venue in front of a live audience.
The piece choreographed as a collaboration between Miss Holt and the dancers used the festival’s theme of reflection to create a work that explored how we view ourselves and others and asks us to reflect on what is important. The performance was well received by the audience and our performers gained a standing ovation and high praise from industry professionals.
Despite a few technical difficulties in the final performance the dancers were extremely dedicated and showed exceeding levels of professionalism, maturity and outstanding ability to perform with control and confidence in this high pressure environment. The dancers did themselves, their families, Miss Holt and the whole school proud.
Selby High School is looking forward to participating again in the Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival next year in 2020.
