On May 8th 2022, Mulberry School for Girls hosted the annual Tower Hamlets Step Around Town event, organised alongside the Royal Academy of Dance’s Step into Dance programme.
Year 10 GCSE Dance students have been completing the programme since September 2021 and the show was an excellent opportunity for them to share their creative work. The school became host to four other local schools who had also participated in the programme; the evening performance was a spectacle of all the students’ dedication and hard work over the past academic year.
Performances ranged from contemporary to hip-hop and afrobeats styles and students were thrilled to be able to mix together again after the last show was cancelled.
Mulberry students said the show was “a really great chance to show off all our work and see what everyone else has done”. We hope to take the performance to the Step LIVE Festival in July 2022 at Cadogen Hall and look forward to continuing to host Step Around Town in the future.
