Young dancers shine

Shrewsbury High School and SHS Dance Academy dancers took their production of Winter Dance to the Walker Theatre at Theatre Severn for the first time this spring and performed to a full house for two nights running. This is the third year the school has put on a dance production, and the first time it transferred to a theatre. The students spent many months putting together a variety of different dance styles and genres in preparation for the production. Shrewsbury High School head of dance Michelle Reece put together the show along with head of SHS Dance Academy Alexandra Scully, and pupils from both groups worked together on ballet and contemporary pieces.

One of the pieces, first performed in 1910, was danced as it would have been danced 100 years ago. The show also included a 20-minute contemporary piece called Platform Exchanges, capturing the emotions of long goodbyes and sweet hellos.
