A VERY successful school year for the Footwork Dance was brought to an end with their latest production, Summer Dance.
In front of a packed audience at the Culture and Music Theatre in Los Montesinos which was hot on the heels from their brilliant performance during Cultural week, the students once again excelled themselves with a varied programme of dance with something for all tastes and expertly put together by Principal Erica Dorrill and her team.
The display from all the cast – from the two-year-old to 75-years young – needs special praise and credit for doing so on such a warm evening and showed their dedication and skill and love for dance.
The varied programme that included ballet, tap, modern, jazz, lyrical, acrobatic and aerobic dance featured many outstanding performances enthusiastically received by the audience…the loudest cheers quite rightly reserved for the youngest students which can only give them more confidence as their experience progresses.
Along with the new routines, amongst them the DDMIX, there were some favourites including the athletically performed Can Can, bringing the first half to a close and the Lord of the Dance, which has become a signature dance for Footwork and raised the roof at the end of the show.
As with all Footwork shows in the past, the costumes were magnificent; the music and production first class. Special mention should be given of the hard work carried out by the often unsung heroes of the front of house team, back stage and the dressers, all contributing to make the show run smoothly and an essential part of the Footwork family.
