Dance at Dauntsey’s
Early this term, pupils from the Upper School danced to sell-out audiences over two nights in our spectacular adaptation of Moulin Rouge.
More than 120
pupils were involved in performing a stunning dance interpretation of this popular
musical. The tragic love story
follows a young Scottish writer who falls in love with the star of the
Moulin Rouge. Set in the Montmartre
Quarter of Paris, the audience follows the journey of these star-crossed lovers
as they explore the bohemian values of ‘Love, Truth, Beauty and Freedom’.
The bulk of the rehearsals took place during the Spring Term with a cast made up of both experienced and completely novice dancers.
Kirsty Glynn, Teacher of Dance, said:
The mix of emotion and
sheer enthusiasm from the pupils was absolutely spell-bounding and many members
of the audience were seen to shed a tear during the performance.
“The cast worked incredibly hard to produce such a polished and professional piece, full of laughs, tears and magic. For me, the show epitomised everything that is fantastic about Dauntsey’s; the pupils were an absolute joy to work with and the end product was a result of the enthusiasm and can-do attitude that makes this such a special School. Everyone should all be very proud of what they achieved.”
