Students ’shine’ at Sheffield Park
2012 had a spectacular ending at Sheffield Park Academy, with students staging dance extravaganza ‘It’s Your Time to Shine.’
Parents, local residents and other guests were treated to a dazzling array of disciplines such as latin, contemporary and street dance, plus an amazing ballet sequence, performed by Sixth Form students to the academy’s recently released charity single ‘Stand Together,’ recorded in support of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. Staged in the final week of last term, the performances also brought together 40 Year 6 students from Pipworth Primary School, who proudly took to the stage after regularly visiting the academy to learn and rehearse their own routine.
Expertly choreographed by Assistant Principal Sarah Szafraniec-Taylor and Assistant Head of School Laura Williams, "It’s Your Time to Shine’ was an astounding success, earning the praise of academy Governor Chris Hudson who said: "It was a wonderful foot-tapping celebration of dance and a perfect showcase for our students’ talents. Almost 30 different routines in one evening is amazing - I don’t know how they remembered it all!"
