House Dance 2021

House Dance at Wellington College is an opportunity for every student to get involved in dance. This much loved event last took place in 2019, but it certainly returned, in all it’s this glory to GWA this week.

During the lead up to the event there had been a buzz around College as the Houses worked together across all ages and abilities to create their unique routines. This year’s theme was ‘Fantasies and Fairy Tales’, and from Aladdin to The Lion King, the chosen songs added to the atmosphere and had the whole theatre wanting to get up and join in. 

The energy, skill, emotion, fun and team-work displayed by every pupil was a true testament to the Wellington Community and a fantastic display of the Wellington Spirit. The quality of all the performances was extremely high, so huge congratulations to Talbot and Apsley for being crowned small and big dance winners.

Head of Dance, Ms. Kenworthy said: “I am so incredibly proud of the way the pupils challenged themselves in House Dance this year. They pushed themselves a little out of their comfort zones to produce some fun, inclusive, exciting and really moving work. The winners combined incredible skill, daring acrobatics, spatial design and rhythm with fun and entertainment.  A special well done to Apsley and Talbot, our winning houses. It was a wonderful evening of dance.”

Mr. Dahl, tweeted: “What. An. Event! After 20 months of dust gathering in the GWA, tonight’s House @DANCEWellington competition was just superb. Electric atmosphere, incredible performances, & amazing for the @WellingtonUK community to come back together for such a terrific terpsichorean tournament!”
