Mullion School Dance Show

Audiences have been enjoying Mullion School’s latest Dance Show, entitled ‘Fresh’, which was a celebration of dance achievement at the school. The show which was put together by specialist Dance Teacher, Tee-J Randall, featured the Year 11 GCSE Dance students who shared their achievements with a public audience. Set dances demonstrated technical skills alongside individual compositions, which showcased more personal dance interests and approaches to choreography. The production also featured work from the Year 9 Dance Leaders group, the Year 7 and 8 Dance group, the Year 9 Dance group and Alpha Freefall, a group made up of boys and girls from Years 7 to 9.

The Year 11 GCSE Dance class performed their individual pieces. The themes that the dancers had chosen were many and varied. One solo dance, choreographed by Megan Knight explored movement based on the idea of obsessive, compulsive disorder. Brittany Laity chose, in one dance, to depict aspects of a telephone conversation, and in another to depict the way a shake in the hands can begin to take over the body and mind. Georgia Pierce selected a piece of music by James Blake and together with Alex Strike, they performed a piece that examined the emotions of someone wanting to be noticed. Chelsea Collins choreographed her piece based on imagery associated with the ‘Hungry Ghosts’, who following death live in perpetual hunger after living a life of greed

The Year 9 Dance Leaders, in 1950s fashion, then stormed into action with a rockabilly number from the musical Hairspray, called ‘You can’t stop the beat.’

Ex student Ruby Taylor-Biddle, now in Year 12 at Truro College, returned to her old school with two students from her current BTEC Performing Arts class to perform Candy, a fast paced contemporary dance to the music of Christine Aguilera. The final dance, by the group Alpha Freefall explored the theme of air travel and looked at the tensions that can occur to a large group of passengers as they wait for their flight to board, before experiencing the horror of an air disaster. Music by Tania Marie, The Champs and Laurie Anderson only served to heighten the anxiety.

Tee-J Randall, who teaches Dance at Mullion School, a specialist school for the Performing Arts, said: “I was really pleased with all of the performances. The boys and girls worked really hard to put on a show that was entertaining and yet which showed off their technical skill. It was also lovely that Ruby came back to show us all the progression into further education. A number of last year’s class also came back to support the current students, which was lovely.” The performances will now be judged by the external GCSE moderator.
