THREE Barry schools have put on a public display in three locations delighting more than 300 spectators with their best dance moves.
Cadoxton, Barry Island and Romilly primaries took to Victoria and Maslin Parks and Romilly’s school ground for a performance inspired by Britain’s Got Talent winners, Diversity’s Ashley Banjo and a comment a boy made about the credibility of dancing.
The event was brought forward two days after weather forecasts predicted rain for the planned date.
The show is due to be pieced together and uploaded to the world-wide video sharing forum, YouTube in the near future.
Organiser Rhian Milton said: “When I applied for the Arts Council grant it was my vision to inspire our community to come together in a shared dance experience.
“It was better than I could ever have imagined and we inspired boys to dance, which was the aim of the project.
“It was incredible we had all our pupils dancing and over 300 spectators. We had at least 30 parent dancers. The impact it has had on the community is massive and our links with Victoria park and John Greatrex are stronger than ever. The dance company we used were Motion Control Dance the choreographers were Emma and Yasmin and they made the whole experience inspiring and unforgettable. We are planning on making it an annual event. We have had parents offering to come and help in school as a result of the school pulling the community together.”
