In August, six Northampton High School pupils had the opportunity to perform on a cruise ship with their dance school. Mayhew School of Performing Arts were approached by the ships’ dancing agency to perform two shows every evening during a five day cruise along Northern Spain.
Alongside 10 other pupils from the dance school, Caitlin (Year 13), Ques-Li, Lucie (Year 12), Lexi (Year 11), Siena-Louise (Year 3) and Emily (Year 2) were fortunate enough to be selected. They had the most incredible time, performing like professional dancers to full audiences, and when they weren’t rehearsing they enjoyed their time exploring the two ports; La Coruna and Bilbao, swimming and eating lots of ice cream! The midnight buffet was a huge hit most nights, especially after the girls sang in the evening karaoke!
The girls also met members of the cruise ship’s dance company and found out how they had become full time dancers. Each of the pupils loved their time at sea and found the experience truly inspiring! Congratulations to our fabulous dancers on this special achievement!
