'Ghost Dances' at Highgate
STEVEN BRETT TAUGHT OUR GOLD AND SILVER ARTS AWARD PUPILS SECTIONS OF THE FAMOUS 'GHOST DANCES'
On December 7th, gold and silver arts award pupils took part in a dance workshop led by Steven Brett, ex artistic director of Ballet Rambert. We learnt two major contrasting sections of the famous ‘Ghost Dances’, choreographed by Christopher Bruce and based on political oppression in South America at the time. We learnt a section in groups of 3 and a section by ourselves; they were quite opposing in style but equally as fun and challenging. The styles were different to what we were used to and we all took a lot away and improved our technique. Overall, everyone enjoyed the workshop and learn a lot which we can use in the future.
