Dance Insight Day at University of Chichester - posted 16th November

On Thursday 4th November, Miss Lawlor took a group of dance students to attend the Dance Insight Day at the University of Chichester. Specifically aimed at Year 12/13 students, the event offers a valuable opportunity for young dancers to learn about a wide range of undergraduate dance degree courses on offer. The group of students included our current Year 13 A Level Dance students and Year 10 BTEC Dance students who really rose to the challenge! The timetable for the day included a keynote speech, a campus tour, participation in a contemporary dance technique class, an inspiring performance by current University students and a Q&A with staff and students. It was an enjoyable day and the students really enjoyed finding out about a range of dance pathways and watching live performances again!

Bishop Luffa Perform at Dance House - posted 16th November

After a long wait, Bishop Luffa School were finally able to perform in Dance House at The Alexandra Theatre in Bognor Regis alongside other local primary and secondary schools. This year it was the turn of our Year 11 BTEC Dance students to perform to a packed audience. As part of their BTEC Dance studies, the students are required to explore and learn professional dance repertoire. The group studied a dance film by Andrew Winghart created to and inspired by ‘Cry Me A River’ performed by Justin Timberlake. Key motifs and moments from the original work are intertwined with new ideas from the dancers. We are so pleased the dancers finally performed this piece, which they created with Miss Inch in December 2020! Their performance was stunning and highlighted their dedication and hard work. All of the dancers rehearsed tirelessly prior to the performance and we are so proud of them all. The organisers were full of praise for our Year 11 dancers not just for their dance ability but also for the way they conducted themselves in the theatre.

Virtual Debate with Wellington Grange - posted 16th November

On Tuesday 9th November we had our first virtual debate with Wellington Grange Care Home in Chichester.  Wellington Grange had been in touch with the school asking whether some of their residents who currently take part in a creative writing class, could set up a debate club with some of our older students.  Many of the residents are in their 90's but they are still very much interested in the world and passing on their hard earned experience and knowledge. They were also keen to learn from the younger generations.
