December 2013: Stage and auditorium packed for dance show


NEARLY 200 dancers were on the stage in the finale of Haslingden High School’s Dance Show 2013.

The expressive arts school lived up to its name as parents, siblings, staff and governors packed the school’s Sixth Form Theatre on each of the three nights to enjoy the performances.

Head of Dance Liza Barrett said: “The feedback we got was excellent and we had lots of emails praising the performers.

“We did a lot of work outside of the curriculum especially for the performance and we had students from all the years up to GCSE and A level performing.

“In total 199 students took part with 40 of those from feeder primary schools Broadway and Helmshore who have been coming into school on a Thursday to a primary dance club.

“For me the highlight was the finale when we had nearly 200 dancers all on stage dancing at the same time.

“This year we had some really great performances.”
