A SCHOOL’S dance show took its capacity audience on a captivating journey into the fantasy world of Narnia.

Harrow Way dance students held their annual BTEC Dance Show to a sell-out crowd.

Each evening Year 9, 10 and 11 students wowed their audiences as they brought the CS. Lewis’ story of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe to Life.

Through a performance of contemporary dance the cast of 95 dancers told the story of four British children evacuated to the countryside during the Blitz.

Year 11 students took on the role of the lead characters Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy.

Lyndsey Walker, Harrow Way’s curriculum leader for dance, said: “There were so many highlights, from the scene with the Year 10s as the evacuation children, which was an uplifting start to the show, the duet between Mr Tumnus and Lucy, depicting their initial curiosity about each other to friendship and the scene where the Beaver family invite the children to dinner.

“Through story telling movements, facial expressions and dramatic lifts the students did an incredible job, genuinely impressing everyone who saw the show.”

Harrow Way has been recognised for its dance and performing arts provision as it received Artsmark Gold status from Arts Council England for its commitment to, and excellence in, arts education.
