Choreography Slam 2019 – a showcase of RGS Dance Talent
Competitors from the First Form to Sixth Form competed on Thursday night in the annual RGS Choreography Slam, this year held in the new Drama Studio. From ballet to street, Irish to contemporary, the range of styles and disciplines was extremely impressive, and the evening also featured two dances from RSM dance troupes, proving that the future of dance at RGS is in good hands.
Yoli M took the prize for Best Dance Performance for an astonishing solo piece, with Amelia D taking time out from exam revision to win Best Original Choreography for a haunting and inventive piece. Special mention was also given to Aisling and Grace G for their Irish dance piece, and to an original piece from Anna G, Sophie F, Angelina L, Rebecca E and Etalie C
The evening was hosted brilliantly by Isabel A from the Performing Arts Council, and was expertly judged by guest professional Kiera Marner (Billy Elliot, The Sound of Music, Flashdance, The Wedding Singer) who provided helpful and constructive feedback to all performers.
