During the Easter break, the GDST Lockdown Dance Competition Finalists were revealed on a Zoom call, hosted by the organiser Mrs Williamson-Jones (Sutton High School) and judged by Kira (a dancer, choreographer and teacher based at Pineapple Studios, London).
The competition was extremely popular with over 250 entries from across the GDST Schools. The age categories consisted of Y3/4, Y5/6, KS3 and KS4 upwards. Northampton High School was represented by the following pupils who performed some amazing pieces.
Y3/4 – Angelie B, Zoe S, Shreya S, Tami S, Ellie J-E, Harini S
Y5/6 – Sophia B, Anya R
KS3 – Holly H, Carolina F-L, Ques-Li DB
KS4 upwards – Hannah S, Kathryn L
We are delighted to announce that Angelie B (Y3) placed in the top 5 for her age group with an energetic Bollywood performance. Hannah S placed top 5 with her beautiful contemporary piece and Ques-Li D-B won the entire KS3 competition, which is absolutely amazing, with a stunning contemporary piece.
We are very proud of all the entries on behalf of Northampton High and we are super excited about the future of our creative dancers. Well done all!
