Tonight the North Shields Dance Festival, organised by St Thomas More catholic High School and North Tyneside PE and School Sport Team, made a welcome return to our annual school calendar. Ten schools came together to perform a dance they had choreographed under the theme of New Beginnings. There were performances from Primary, High and Special School pupils in the local authority with children of all ages taking part.
Year 5 pupils represented our school with a piece called ‘No New Beginnings’ performed to the music ‘Bad Boys’ from Bugsy Malone. The performance showed a group of gangsters who do not want ‘New Beginnings’ and would prefer to remain ‘bad’. The performance included traditional jazz dance moves that highlighted the cheekiness of the gangsters. It was wonderful to see the children perform on such a big stage to a huge audience - they were absolutely fantastic!
