Redruth Learning Group encompasses schools from across the district, coming together for a festival of dance at the Regal Theatre. Aged between four and 17, the majority of the children performing in the show have never taken part in dance lessons before this event on the big stage in front of large audiences.
The purpose of the project is to make dance accessible to everyone and unify the youth community. On Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th March, there will be over 300 dancers performing.
Each school has developed a dance based around a particular theme, which is chosen to link in with the topic that they are currently studying, incorporating dance styles ranging from ballet to Bollywood and street to salsa.
RCT Chair Chris Hailey said:
“We have had the pleasure of watching previous RLG Dance performances, indeed our own family members have performed, and it is clear how much the young people enjoy taking part. Beyond the thrill for the children and audience alike, RLG Dance inspires confidence, collaboration and community. I’m delighted that our friends at the Lions and Rotary shared our conviction to support this event and we can’t wait to cheer the children on this week.”
Craig Martin, Headteacher at Redruth School said:
“I am delighted to receive this contribution towards the RLG Dance event. We’ve now held this for a small number of years and it has proved immensely popular and beneficial to the young people of our area. This support goes a long way to maintaining this for our young people and their families.”
