Professional dance instructor, Rebecca Ruddock, was impressed with the skills of Brooke Weston students as she choreographed a recent performance with them.

Rebecca, who has been working for the Northamptonshire County Council 'Dance 2 Educate' scheme said that the Year 7,8 and 9 students were very capable and injected a lot of enthusiasm and professionalism into their performance. 'The level of expertise is very good, especially considering their age' she said.

The group of 20 girls took part in a performance at the Willows Arts Centre with at least 12 other primary and secondary schools taking part.

Each of the schools used narrative as a starting point. The Brooke Weston students were given the story of Romeo and Juliet plus the film soundtrack to work with.

The performance lasted around nine minutes; comprising a group performance, a duet dance by 'Romeo and Juliet' and an end-piece to round it off. Georgia Mitchell of Year 8 portrayed Romeo while Year 7 student, Zoe Gracie took the role of Juliet.

The Dance 2 Educate promotes dance in the county and a team of choreographers are sent out to work in different schools. Rebecca said: 'The students here have been a really good bunch to work with; they've picked up the material really well. They have choreographed the end dance themselves'.

Brooke Weston's regular dance club is held on Thursday nights after school – newcomers are welcome. Contact teacher Caroline Russon for more details.
