Chesterfield children take to the stage for a dance extravaganza

Infant and Primary School children from across Chesterfield wowed capacity crowds at the Winding Wheel Theatre over our two-day 2018 Primary Dance Festival.

100s of spectators were treated to 40 performances from 21 schools across the four festivals, including special guest performances from two secondary schools and a solo singalong.

Organised by Chesterfield School Sport Partnership, this showcase event brought together over 600 pupils of all ages to share their achievement through performing their routine to a live audience.

Mr Macnamara, a teacher at Walton Holymoorside Primary School said: “Thanks for organising the festival today, the kids had a great time performing and watching the other schools. We have also had some great feedback from parents.”

The event was a great success and the dancers showed great courage performing on stage, many of whom for the first time.

Sarah Campbell, Leadership and Physical Activity Officer at the Chesterfield School Sport Partnership, said: “The primary dance platform provides an opportunity for every young person to perform and showcase their personal best.

It takes a huge amount of courage and determination to take the steps onto the stage and perform, and to see the self-confidence, pride and smiles as they leave the stage is why we do it.

“Our dance festival is an annual event and to see it grow over the past few years to run over two days with four performances is testament to the support of the primary schools across Chesterfield and to the hard work of teachers and parents.”

Congratulations to all the schools who performed, everyone was excellent and fully embraced the theme ‘Stage and Screen’. We hope to see you all again next year, whether that be at the Primary or Secondary Dance Festivals.

Also a big thank you to the Leaders from Netherthope School, St Mary’s Catholic High School and our Gold Young Ambassadors for their help throughout the festivals.
