On 7th February, the Dobson Theatre sparkled under the glitter ball whilst a 50-strong cast of the school’s most diverse dancers performed in the annual KES Dance Gala. With styles including ballet, tap, traditional north Indian, hip-hop, contemporary and musical theatre, the evening was a colourful celebration of talent and expression.
The dancers all gave polished performances and took to the stage with professionalism and passion. Each act was closed by the cast of the recent production of West Side Story with their versions of ‘Cool’ and ‘America’ – two of the more demanding dance numbers from the musical. The Dance Department at KES has always aimed to honour and encourage all abilities and styles, and the evening was no exception in showcasing the pleasure this art form brings to pupils.
