Dance trip to The Royal Opera House
On Wednesday 17 December, GCSE Year 9 students along with a selection of students from years 8 and 10 went to see The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party by ZooNation at The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.
ZooNation creates irresistible narrative hip hop dance theatre and has won nationwide acclaim with its hugely popular shows. Artistic Director Kate Prince and her company present brilliantly exuberant dance adventures overflowing with energy and wit.
The Mad Hatter's Tea Party was a witty performance that included a range of street styles as well as some contemporary movement. Students enjoyed the live accompaniment and noted how well the choreography portrayed their version of The Mad Hatters Tea Party.
I have no doubt the show has made a valuable contribution to students’ learning in Dance and the Arts as a whole.
