Gateshead Schools Dance Festival 2012

This year represented the 4th year we have been fortunate enough to hold the Gateshead Schools Dance Festival at The Sage, Gateshead.  The festival has grown year on year, now spanning 2 days and consiting of 4 individual sessions.

Nearly 2000 pupils participated in the event over the 2 days, performing routines linked to the London 2012 Olympic & paralympic Games.  In particular, performances embraced the theme of 'opening ceremonies', resulting in a range of lively, colourful and diverse routines.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all schools and participants on the quality and creativity of their dances.  It goes without saying that spectators will have seen a 'show to remember' thanks to all of your efforts.

With this years festival now behind us, plans are already underway for 2013.  If you would like to put forward an idea for a theme for this event please post a comment on the forum within this site;
