Week 7

Preparations for the dance finale are well under way.

Sophie and Megan (Year 11) describe how things are progressing.

This is the favourite dance of most of the girls.  It's a jazzy, show-stopping number, typical of the Berlin cabaret scene in the 1930s.  As you can see the stage is packed with girls and there is lots going on.  Girls are dancing in small groups, doing their own routines, yet each routine is designed to complement the other.  What's more, the show starts in the cabaret and now ends there, so there's a rounded feel to the performance.

It's hard work, says Megan.  Total concentration is required to get the timing spot on.  On the plus side, the music is fantastic and the costumes are stunning.  More about that next time.
