Bedales showcases best local dance talent

Bedales hosted a stunning display of dance at the Youth Dance Platform last weekend. The annual showcase of creative and imaginative contemporary dance saw students from Bedales and Dunhurst programmed alongside groups from other schools, colleges, and independent dance companies. Dunhurst Blocks 1 and 2 pupils performed a piece to a mix of songs from Walk on By to Walking on Sunshine. Street, Ballet, Modern and Tap were included in this piece. Bedales students’ choreography comprised a piece by Daisy Nielsen (Block 5) in a fast-moving Charleston duet with Daniel Rasbash (6.2). Block 4 students performed a piece to music by Danny Elfman. The Youth Dance Platform acted as a perfect rehearsal for Bedales Dance Performs two days later, which featured students studying Dance at BAC and A Level. The evening featured 17 performances inspired by different cultures. Read more. View photos: Youth Dance Platform; Bedales Dance Performs.
