Dance Exchange at the Theatre
Here is an account from Safia and Yasmina of their trip to Milton Keynes Theatre with the Bushfield Dance Exchange team:
After weeks of practise, we finally arrived at Milton Keynes Theatre on Wednesday 20th January. We put on our outfits and entered the stage for a dress rehearsal. We were all very exited, yet nervous, as the music started. After two practises, we gathered our belongings and went back to school.
Later on, we returned to the theatre. After watching the first half, we were called to our dressing rooms. We had a dressing table, and there were even lights around the mirrors! We made our finishing touches and watched the act before us on the TV screen. Standing on the stage wing waiting, we were all very nervous. The curtains closed and we crept into position as the presenter introduced us we heard, “Bushfield School” followed by a loud cheer. The curtains were pulled back and we performed.
We got a massive applause as we skipped off the stage. A while after our performance, there was a big finale where all of the children who took part went back on stage and waved at the crowd. We had a really memorable experience and want to do it again, we loved Dance Exchange 2010!
