Trip of a lifetime to New York, Baltimore and Washington!

Trip of a lifetime to New York, Baltimore and Washington!

 

Sixth Form dancers spent 9 days in America sightseeing in New York and Washington and performing in Baltimore Arts Schools.

The Baltimore Exchange has been running since 2005 and over 60 students have enjoyed the trip over the years. This year 12 students travelled to New York where they not only had fun sightseeing but also watched a Broadway Show before travelling to Baltimore to perform.

They performed in Patapsco High School and Centre for the Arts in their 900 capacity auditorium. They also met their e-penpals, shadowed them in lessons and took part in a master class before creating a joint dance for the evening showcase. Over the week they also performed in Cromwell Elementary School, West Towson Elementary School and Carver Centre for the Arts. Other experiences included doing a ballet class with the Maryland State Teacher of the Year, a pool barre class at the Megan Rich Studio’s and attending a ‘cookout’ at one of the e-penpals homes.

The end of the trip saw a trip to Washington to see all the sights and the famous cherry blossom. The students that attended the trip were a credit to the school and we look forward to entertaining the American students at Windsor in June this year during the return leg of the trip!

Jennifer Rowley, year 13
‘Baltimore was an experience of a lifetime that has helped me develop my skills as a performer and I would love to go and do it all again!’

Ellie May, year 13
‘The Baltimore Exchange helped broadened my dance knowledge and made me see dance in a different light, in a different country. It also allowed me to see what being on tour as a dancer would be like!’
