Dancers impress

Headington dancers have been keeping busy with a stream of shows, performances and exams. Read a report about their activities from Director of Dance Miss Faith Jackson.

Headington Dance Academy show

We were incredibly excited for the first HDA show to take place this year.

Students in Prep, Foundation, Progression and the Principal Company performed their outstanding work, demonstrating commitment, focus and exceptional ability.

All of the dancers have worked incredibly well throughout the year preparing for this and should be very proud of their work.

Headington Dance Academy Principal company performed in Kingston at Fuse Festival

On Tuesday 5th July HDA Principal company performed at the Arthur Cotterrell Theatre in Kingston as part of Dillon Dance’s show for Fuse Festival.

They performed a section of the dance work that they have been creating and learning throughout this year and their performance was exceptional, demonstrating outstanding ability and performing complex and challenging choreography.

It was a wonderful experience for the dancers to perform outside of Headington, well done to all involved for their incredible work and we look forward to future events.
