Year 9 become Screendance Directors and...

Last term, Year 9 dancers took on a new challenge where they combined their dance and photography skills to create Screen Dances. Screendance is a hybrid arts form that combines movement with the camera to stir the imagination and deliver a unique visual experience to explore motion and subject matter. The relationship between both the camera and the moving subject is intricately intertwined in the editing process delivering a filmic dance.

Screen dance is a growing art form in the dance industry with most Universities offering it as a module or Masters course. Screen dances are also more accessible to wider audiences being shared through social media and festivals.

Our Year 9 students did exceptionally well at becoming choreographers, directors and editors. They gained skills which they could use in future Dance lessons or Media or Photography A Level.
