The message for International Dance Day 2011
“I think dance celebrates what makes us human.” – Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker (Contemporary dance choreographer)
Every year, Redcar Academy celebrates International Dance Day. On this day dance celebrated around the world. It originally started in 1982 so dance could be introduced to a new audience.
On the 10th, 11th and 12th May, around 60 students took part in 5 dance performances; these students were not only from Redcar Academy but also Sacred Heart, Bydales and Rye Hills School. The audience were treated to a variety of different dance genres from, Contemporary to Jive. The Year 10 and Year 11 Dance BTEC students performed for their Dance exam and all of them should be proud of the grades that they have achieved. The students did a fantastic job and were incredibly professional throughout all the performances.
The Dance department also raised £90 for the Uganda Appeal, through the sale of programmes and a raffle.
