Rock Challenge Competition
On Thursday 28 April Alisha Smith in Yr 13 led a talented group of students in taking part in Rock Challenge, a national dance competition run by the Be Your Best Foundation.
The day was an outstanding success with our students from Yr 7 to Yr 13 representing BGS in an exemplary manner, with other schools commenting that they were the only students to mix (as in dance battle!) with other schools.
All our students performed incredibly well on the night and, although we didn’t place, Bingley Grammar won two notable awards:
- Student Leadership - Alisha from Y13 put together the group, choreographed the routine and dealt with all the staff from the Be Your Best Foundation.
- Best Group - this was voted for by all the other schools present with parents and crew commenting on how technical the dance was and there being such a mixture of styles from house, to ballet to street dancing, it really was amazing!
Overall we learnt a lot from the day and look forward to next year, where we would encourage more students to join our dance ensemble of 35. Once again a massive well done and thank you for such a great experience.
