Choreographic Competition and Annual Awards 2014

On Saturday 29th November the Jack Hunt Dance & Theatre School Choreographic Competition took place. Students aged 4 – 18 took the opportunity to choreograph their own dances and perform them in front of family and friends. The standard of entries was extremely high, showing outstanding creativity and musicality. The adjudicator, Mrs Pat Garfield, had a very difficult task deciding on the winners and offered individual advice and encouragement to all the dancers before announcing the results.
