Two Dance teams from St. Mary’s Menston recently took part in the Leeds Dance Competition for Key Stage 3 (11-14 age group) and Key Stage 4 (14-16 age group).
The annual competition, organised by the Leeds North West School Sport Partnership, has now been running for five years and was this year hosted by Temple Moor High School. Eleven schools performed in the competition and provided a diverse style of performances. The event was judged by dancers/choreographers Marion Gilhooly and Jo Parry who were extremely impressed with the high standard from all the schools.
The St. Mary’s team of Alicia Stringwell, Sophie Sage, Amorette Lawn, Sophia Lenik, Chloe Williams, Alicia Wilson and Caragh Casserly were worthy winners of the Key Stage 4 competition.
The future of St. Mary's Dance appears to be bright. Mischa Simpson, Molly Steele, April Walton, Lucy Hings, Romey Parker, Charlotte Pickstone, Hattie Barnes, Fiona Moore, Anna Slaboduch, Ella-Grace Shaw, Libby Woffenden and Rhianne Shaw performed an excellent routine but narrowly missed out on the medal position with Temple Moor High School winning the Key Stage 3 competition.
