Description

Schools are invited to enter up to 4 teams of between 4 and 30 pupils (single gender or mixed) to take part in the competition.

Each team should prepare a dance of any dance style. Pupils must choreograph the routine themselves. Routines should be between 2.5 and 4 minutes in duration.

Dances should be able to be performed within a space approximately 10m x 7m.

Teams are required to submit a short paragraph (max 150 words) detailing the inspiration and concept of the teams routine which will be used by the judges to score the categories.

Music should be saved to MP3/4 format and submitted to Lisa McGreevy (lisa.mcgreevy@cityacademynorwich.org) prior to the event.

Each routine will be judged by a panel of external judges who will use the following four categories totaling 100 points;

  1. Concept and soundtrack

The winning dance will be invited to represent the SSP at the Norfolk School Games Finals on Friday 14th February at UEA Sportspark.
