By Claire Gammon, Teacher in Charge of Dance    

Last week saw Bedales Dance students take part in two workshops. Dancers from Chichester University’s ‘3FALL’ dance company came to work with A level students.

Rosie Crawley (6.2) said: “the workshop was really helpful for my exam as I can use loads of the ideas, but the next day I couldn‟t walk – those dancers work so hard!” The BAC students, as part of looking at dance in culture, worked with Sanjuti Deew, a classical Indian dancer who has recently finished performing at the South Bank. Students learnt the original classical dance form and then learnt a Bollywood Routine. View photos.
