WHAT DID YOU DO?
We staged a dance show involving over 200 of our pupils. With the help of scores of volunteers we ran rehearsals and staged 4 performances at Harpenden Public Halls.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO RAISE MONEY FOR COOL EARTH?
We wanted to support both human and environmental charities with our show and the former owner of the school had researched and supported Cool Earth in the past. We agreed that it was important to encourage our pupils to look beyond their immediate environment.
Seeing the dancers rise to the challenge and the school come together, all helping to make a show we could all be very proud of.
Starting the process, not knowing how it would all work out!
ADVICE TO OTHERS?
Start publicity early – it is easy to get wrapped up in all the different aspects of production and before you know it the actual performances are nigh and the posters aren’t up!
