Millfield Dance hosted a showcase of local talent, featuring performances with Millfield dance pupils alongside other groups from the Somerset area.
Millfield’s elite dance groups Aspire, Bazique & Lavolta welcomed groups from The SPACE in Taunton, LA Festival group from Minehead, Yeovil College, Taunton Youth Dance Company, Somerset Youth Dance Company and Millfield Prep & Pre-Prep School.
All groups performed their own choreography at the event in Millfield’s Meyer Theatre, which featured a mix of contemporary, street dance, physical theatre, commercial, jazz and musical theatre.
Millfield pupils performed an extract from musicals ‘Cats’ and ‘Cabaret’, as well as a street dance piece, and Aspire showcased their newest piece of contemporary choreography ‘In Motion’.
Other groups demonstrated confident street dance moves and some emotive choreography with themes around migration and the environment. Finally, pupils from Millfield Prep and Pre-Prep brought some Christmas cheer to the stage with their ballet pieces to ‘The Snowman’ soundtrack.
Millfield’s Head of Dance, Katey Leader, says, “It was fantastic to bring together so many different dance groups from the region for the very first time in this way. After the success of this first performance, we hope to continue to celebrate dance in the local community again next year.”
