Parents of performers invited to attend! RAD Step into Dance

On the Night!!

The Harris Girls’ RAD team - Innov8, took to the stage at Ravenswood School for the fourth consecutive year on Monday 23rd of April. This year our girls performed a Hunger Games themed dance choreographed by our fantastic Step Into Dance teacher Kevin Young. The girls were last to perform at the Spring Sharing - pulling of one of the best performances of the night. Mrs Abbott, Miss Jasper and I were incredibly proud of every single student that performed. Well done girls! Keep dancing! 

By Miss Dent - Head of Dance

The ‘Spring Sharing Borough Competition’ is the first stage of the ‘STEP into DANCE programme’. The borough competitions are hosted for all companies to present their work for the chance to be selected to perform at the final taking place at Sadler’s Wells in July.
