The Dance department has had a busy first half term of the new school year. They have welcomed visitors to the school, who have worked with pupils to develop their performance in a variety of dance styles.
Year 7 boys participated in a breakdancing workshop with Avant Cymru. After enjoying exhilarating demonstrations and being instructed in the skills and techniques involved in breakdancing, the department are hoping to be successful in receiving external funding. This would then mean being able to host a breakdancing club which will run on a weekly basis at Treorchy Comprehensive School.
Our senior dancers had a fantastic opportunity to work with Ballet Cymru on a 2 day residential project. The school senior dancers rehearsed alongside the professional dancers and choreographed a ballet piece based on the theme of friendship and support. The school performers then had the opportunity to perform it as a curtain raiser before the company’s performance of Cinderella in the Park and Dare Theatre.
