ArtsEd's Youth Dance Company gave a stunning performance at the Royal Albert Hall in November as part of this year's Dance Proms, which marked the final Proms.
Dance Company Director, Christopher Reynolds was delighted with their performance:
'ArtsEd Youth Dance Company were fantastic, they worked incredibly hard during rehearsals and this was seen in their professional attitude and performance at the Royal Albert Hall. Huge congratulations to all the dancers and thank you to all the parents for their continued support of the Day School and Sixth Form.'
While Headteacher Adrian Blake said: “I’m enormously proud of all the students in Dance Company, and Mr Reynolds the Company Director – performing at The Royal Albert Hall is such an incredible opportunity! With students singing at The London Palladium last week, and students dancing at The Royal Albert Hall just a few days later, this is a wonderful time to be part of ArtsEd!”
The Dance Proms brings together dance teachers and their students, aged between 5 and 21 years, from around world to create original dance pieces using any style of dance in their own schools or studios.Since 2011, when three of the world’s leading dance examination boards, the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), the International Dance Teachers’ Association (IDTA), and the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) joined forces with the Royal Albert Hall, Dance Proms has been an international celebration of dance, dancers and dance teachers. The first ever Dance Proms involved 450 young people performing in front of an audience of 3,000 and was a huge success with both performers and audience.
Technology is now used to encourage the sharing of ideas and experience and the opportunity to interact with respected dance professionals and high-profile names in the industry. It also allows the wider public to engage with and shape the project by offering an online public voting element. For more details see http://www.danceproms.co.uk/
