Monday 15th July saw the last big performance event of the year at ALNS; Performing Arts Evening. The evening celebrated the best of performance talent showcasing Music, Drama and Dance and a short collaborative performance with 28 Chinese students that had been working with us.
The evening kicked off with a video of this year’s Rock Challenge entry showing the highlights of the event. We all enjoyed performances from the Year 9 Dance students which included the LBGTQ piece that was performed at the “Are you listening?” festival in early July. From Music we heard the Mophead Muppets, Alfie Weston, Hannah Leigh-Cook, Bianca Mares and the fabulous Year 9 band. From Drama we saw the piece they had created for the “City of Sanctuary” launch which was incredibly moving using the real words of refugees.
A highlight of the evening was the Drama ambassadors piece working with students from China to retell the powerful story of Mulan which they created in a day. Watching the Chinese students perform with ours with a privilege, they were all so excited as they had never done anything like that before!
As always our students performed with skill and enthusiasm in a true showcase of ALNS talent.
