Kidical Mass Wolverhampton

On Saturday 15th June selected pupils who regularly attend Dance or Musical Theatre Club were given the opportunity to perform at Kidical Mass Wolverhampton, which took place at East Park, representing schools from the City at the event which campaigns for safer streets to cycle on aligning with our Smestow Value of ‘Equality and Respect for All.’

The Smestow girls performed as part of a celebration at the end of the main cycling event. Not only did they demonstrate commitment to the Performing Arts, by giving up their time on a Saturday to attend the performance, but they were extremely resilient and adaptable to the change in performance space and the wet conditions the ground was in, the girls took everything that was thrown their way in their stride exemplifying our Smestow Values or ‘Success Achieved Together.” 

Congratulations to:

M Kaseke 7G1

S Banger 7D2

O Akesuyi 7D2 

H Harris 7D2

Z Sumner 8D1

B Harper 9H2.

The girls performed two contemporary dances, dazzling the audience with their lifts, tricks and partner work with the scenery of the trees behind them adding to the spectacle. Most of the girls who performed had never danced before it was introduced to the curriculum in September, so to be able to participate in a public performance shows just how much hard work they have put in both inside and outside of lessons they are truly ‘Making a Difference Every Day.’ The performance finished with a beautiful solo choreographed by Z Sumner 8D1, a seasoned dancer who is now demonstrating her choreography skills using what she has learned this year in lessons and being inspired to incorporate new movements she had learned from routines we have explored in clubs throughout the year. 

The Creative Arts Department are unbelievably proud of the progress these pupils have made and can’t wait to provide even more performance opportunities for our pupils.
