Zoo Nation Dance Project

Fourteen of our gifted and talented students in dance have been working on a project with The Grand Theatre and London based hip hop dance company Zoo Nation. Since September they have been training twice a week with professional choreographer and dancer Nathan Marsh on a dance based on a twisted version of Humpty Dumpty. They then performed this at The Grand Theatre in a professional show alongside 11 other schools in the Black Country. From this, students will be chosen from each school as stand out talent and will train with Zoo Nation over February half term on a new dance for a curtain raiser at the end of February when Zoo Nation tour their show ‘Into the Hoods’ to Wolverhampton. We also entered the Great Big Dance Off which is a national competition and came 1st in the Regional Heat for the West Midlands and are now in the finals in July competing against the rest of the qualifiers from the UK.

Students: Xsia Blair, Keviann Dawkins, Mya Wright, Malcolm Kimani, Jasmine Brissett, Aaliyah Brooks, Aleasha Brooks, Shannon Gray, Sarah Lucy Allen, Tanisha Haughton, Beth Henry, Chris Otim, Chido Mhondiwa and Diana Maruta.
