AX Dancers Mental Health Awareness

On Friday 12th May, 28 AX dancers traveled on the 252 bus, into Romford Market to promote awareness for Mental Health as part of the ‘BIG event’, outside of Romford Shopping Hall.

The aim of the ‘big event’ was to learn about ways to improve your mental well being and discover different services available in Havering; whether it was football training or a cake and tea afternoon.

AX Jnrs and AX Dance Company (year 7 to 10) performed a variety of styles through the following choreographies:

  1. Mad World, performed by AX Jnrs (a choreography expressing the difficulties of mental health)
  2. Samba Blast, performed by AX Dance Company (a choreography taken from the new GCSE specification, exploring A Linha Curva)
  3. Captain Jack, performed  by AX Jnrs (this choreography was the KS3 winning choreography for Havering in the London Youth Games)
  4. Realms, performed by AX Dance Company (a choreography looking at the realms in the after life, focusing on tragedy, peace and anger)

The weather managed to hold out until the very end  and all students were professional, expressive and represented the academy with pride. Many members of the event and of the general public, praise the AX dancers on their exceptional performances.

A final thanks goes to Debra from Tapestry, for inviting us to this incredible event and to Mr Mason for his support throughout the day.
