Nurturing and developing artistic skills

'We are very proud of the artistic skills that are being nurtured and developed in our school and look forward to the growth of the Performing Arts over the course of this academic year', Ms. Emily Richards (BVIS Hanoi Performing Arts Lead) shared about the school artistic achievements during the first term of school year.

This year’s Primary combination Arts Festival was a triumph for the students and their specialist teachers. The Primary dance studio, where the children had previously studied for the dance performances, was turned into an art gallery. Every child in the whole school had a piece of work on display and, with the ambient stage lighting, the studio was turned into a forest of colour. 

After the parents had walked around the art gallery, they were welcomed into the Sports’ Hall where Years 1 to 3 sang “We wish you a Merry Christmas” and set the stage for the Arts Winter Festival. Each year group showed the various skills they had been working on in Music and Dance classes this term. 

Year 3 students had been studying the Juilliard practitioner Merce Cunningham and explored the concept of ‘chance’ as the inspiration for their dance creations. Students contributed one move each, selected at random from a hat – Tilt, Jump, Swing or Reach. Everything else was developed by chance, leading to very original compositions. Our Year 4 students have explored the idea of dancing at different levels and travelling around the dance space. Their dances were inspired by the work of John Heginbotham, another of the Juilliard core practitioners. The Juilliard ECA group has been working in collaboration with the Art teacher to create personalised name tags that would later inspire a Hip Hop style dance. 

The plethora of students playing instruments – from Flute, Piccolo, Clarinet, Recorder, Ocarina, Drum, Violin, Ukulele, Guitar, Piano and Vocal harmonies – are testament to how hard and enthusiastically our students have worked this term. The music was a mix of Traditional European Christmas carols and more popular festive songs.  Many of these songs were also sung at the Intercontinental Hotel Christmas Market and at Melia Hotal Christmas Season Ceremony, impressing all audiences.

This Festive Season is also the time for Award ceremony of the Term 1 In2Music students. In2Music is a free music programme set up by the BVIS Music department to encourage a larger variety of orchestral instruments to be learnt within the school. We are so proud to see the children show us what they have learnt with their Music mentors from Secondary and we look forward to the next group of In2Music students in term 2. At the Ceremony, students heard a talk from Pablo Yang about the value of music in schools. Pablo is a multi-talented musician that we have had the privileged to work with in many capacities. After Christmas we are looking forward to working with him as our new ECA Flute, Trumpet, Clarinet and Saxophone teacher.
