Once again, an eager group of Ridgeway dancers has lit up the stage in a regional heat of The Great Big Dance Off at Parr Hall, Warrington. In April 2018 Dulcee Cook, Caitlin-Summer Hutchings, Lauren Fairclough and Elizabeth Edwards-Meredith performed an outstanding routine to ‘The Greatest Show’, using hats and canes as props.
It’s now the third year running that Ridgeway has taken part in this flourishing competition, which describes itself on its website as “a popular national dance competition open to schools all across England and Wales”.
With dance teacher Miss Love currently on maternity leave, Ms Morgan, director of the creativity and enterprise faculty, stepped in to accompany the girls to Warrington.
Ms Morgan said: “It was a delight to be involved in the competition and I absolutely loved seeing the girls excel on stage, revelling in the exhilaration of live performance. They performed incredibly well and were a credit to the school.
“They did amazingly well to come eighth overall. More than twenty north-west schools were represented this year and the standard was extremely high. They have put in a lot of hard work preparing for this event. I am incredibly proud of their achievement and the way they conducted themselves throughout.”
