Students Showcase Their Dancing Skills

Hales student Polly and 6th Former Bethany recently took part in a showcase production for the Kent School of Dance. Over the weekend of 4th and 5th March both girls danced at the Hazlett Theatre in Maidstone showing their ballet, tap and point skills. The theme of the production was Musicals and so Polly and Bethany danced to songs from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Cats to name a few. They needed to do various costume changes in between dances so there was never any rest. Both girls have danced since they were three years old and both are at Grade 6 in Ballet and Tap. Unbeknown to the girls one of our teachers, Miss Heatley, was in the audience and spotted them. In Miss Heatley’s own words “I was there to see my five year old niece perform so it was an added bonus when I saw Polly and Bethany. They really were excellent and I couldn’t wait to get back to school to sing their praises!”.
