Recently GY Dance Company and Year 10 GCSE Dancers took to Ogstoun stage to perform two numbers they have been working on this term. For Year 10 it was a version of one of their set dance works A Linha Curva performed by Rambert Dance Company. This is an exciting vibrant piece based on Brazilian culture, students were lucky enough to see Rambert perform it live at the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh at the end of October. They also had a workshop with the company on the stage of the Festival Theatre the following day. This was probably the most complex piece  performed by a Year 10 group at this stage in the course. They did it exceptionally well.

Meanwhile GY have been working on an original piece called The Collector of Dreams, the dance explores the idea that at times a dream can control us and while at other times we can control the dream. The end result was quite different to anything recently performed by the company, it was extremely well received by the audience. One Year 13 student quoting it was the best thing he had seen by GY during his time in school.
