Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre Trip
Dance students from Year 11 and 12 were invited to a rare opportunity at the Birmingham Hippodrome on Friday. Professional Dance Company from New York ‘Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre’ were in Birmingham on tour and invited the public to watch their rehearsal on stage prior to the show in the evening. This was a fantastic opportunity for our students, who were able to see how professionals conduct themselves in rehearsal, whilst also watching the choreographer deliver critical feedback to generate improvement from his company. Students conducted themselves brilliantly and have already taken ideas they saw on stage into the classroom which is fantastic to see.
