WORLD Dance Day was marked with a packed schedule of events, from flash mobs to West End theatre workshops and ballet lessons.
The event was celebrated around the school, in First Avenue, Harlow, and saw a number of professional visitors work with students.
Zest Dance Company, from London, held a Bollywood dance workshop with Year 7 and 8 students, while the GCSE dance group enjoyed a ballet workshop.
West End performer and choreographer David Bridges visited the school to contribute to the day.
Flash mob dances appeared around the school and a lunchtime breakdance battle meant all students could get involved and have fun.
Assistant head of Performing Arts Sarah Viccars said: “We are a performing arts school and should be encouraging children to get involved in activities like this.
“The role of performing arts in education is so important from confidence building to performance ability; there are lots of transferable skills for other subjects.”
