Over the last two weeks students across Years 7 – 10 have excelled in a professional West End workshop with Head of Dance Mrs Carpenter and West End performer Philippa Stefani. Via Teams, the students learned repertoire from Matilda and became ‘Revolting Children’ for an hour. At the end of the session students also enjoyed asking Philippa questions about the performing arts industry and the shows she has previously starred in which include Ghost, Mamma Mia 2 and Wicked to name a few!

The Dance Department at Hazel Grove prides itself on creating such opportunities for our students and encourages them to keep an eye out for more in the future. Dance begins again in September after school on Tuesdays and Thursday and we look forward to seeing all year groups there to prepare for shows, competitions and more exciting opportunities.
