YOU might have thought that so soon after a production celebrating Brenda Taylor’s 80th birthday in October, it would have been too much for The Brenda Taylor School of Dance and Performing Arts to put on a Christmas show… but you’d be wrong!
The Dance Centre at Latton Bush was once again turned into a Winter Wonderland, to showcase the talent of the cast of children aged from 5 to 18.
The evening opened with a stunning choral arrangement of Silent Night which set the tone for the show ahead. Highlights included The Good Ship Lollipop, a classic from the school’s repertoire, performed by some of the younger children and Carol of the Bells arranged by Odette Perdrisat and sung by the older cast.
Solo ballets by Laurine Koa and Charlotte Head were beautifully performed. Navaah Dixon and Olivia Cowley took on solo numbers in Bugsy Malone and both held the audience in the palms of their hands. In possibly their last Christmas shows with the school before moving onto university, Summer Harrison and Rebecca Smith demonstrated exactly what hard work and commitment to the Brenda Taylor School can achieve. The younger members of the cast obviously look up to them.
All cast members were in Charlie in the Chocolate factory but it was the very littlest Oompa Loompas who wowed the audience with their parcel passing skills!
Kathy Taylor, Brenda Taylor, with the help of their technical crew and chaperones, put on a show of which they should be proud.
Here’s to 2023 and another great year for the school!!
Congratulations, Brenda and Kathryn and all your dancers! I would have liked to be there with you, but your Christmas show was only brought to my attention today. To a successful 2023!
