Twelve Kingsbury High School students performed at a borough wide dance event on Tuesday 20th May 2014. The event celebrated the best of North London youth dance and was organised by Step into Dance, which is a partnership between the Royal Academy of Dance and the Jack Petchey Foundation.

The evening, held at Capital City Academy, also acted as auditions for the Step into Dance annual showcase; Step LIVE!, which will take place at Sadler’s Wells Theatre on Saturday 5th July. Sue Goodman, Step into Dance, Artistic and Programme Director said “There were so many different dance genres on show, and so much talent! I am very proud of them all.”

The Kingsbury High School performers from Years 7 – 9 have been working with Step into Dance choreographer, Maria Ghoumrassi, since October 2013 to create their moving piece entitled ‘Lest We Forget’. In the audience were Brent Councillor, Councillor Bobby Thomas; MP for Brent North, Barry Gardiner; and Deputy Leader of Brent Council, Michael Pavey, who said “Kingsbury High really raised the bar on a fantastic evening of dance. Their performance was not only visually brilliant, but genuinely thought-provoking; absolutely stunning.”

Kingsbury High’s performance follows a school production in March, also entitled, ‘Lest We Forget’, which commemorated the one hundredth anniversary of the start of the First World War.
