Dance events

Choreographic Competition

The Choreographic Competition is an annual school event every November, in which every child is entitled to take part. This competition is about having fun and taking part, experiencing performance on stage and competition; as well as gaining increased self-confidence. Pupils are able to choose their own music, their costume and make-up and hair design. We have a wide variety of dance sections ranging from Musical Theatre to Ballet with the chance to arrange groups, solos, duets … whatever takes your fancy! There are cups and prizes to be won on the day.
The event is held at the Elgiva Theatre Chesham.
