NAE Performing Arts Festival

February 14, 2020

  • Two students from BISW in PA Festival

The Nord Anglia Education Performing Arts Festival took place at one of our sister schools, North Broward Preparatory School in Fort Lauderdale and included students aged 11-18 from all Nord Anglia schools across North and South America (289 students attended this year). Students can choose a Discovery or Young Artist pathway depending on their previous experience and can attend workshops in Drama, Dance, Voice, Musical Theatre and Music genres. BISW students, Grace Webner in year 7 and Mai Gabra in year 8, attended this year and chose workshops such as Stage Combat, Theatre Games, Contemporary Dance, and Disney Sing-along. They also took part in a Musical Theatre workshop led by a former Broadway performer, and learned original choreography from the latest Broadway smash Hamilton, taught by one of the current cast members.

Afternoons included rehearsals for a final performance which took place at South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center on Sunday evening in front of a live audience. Grace chose to perform in a Contemporary Dance piece, which was choreographed by an ex-Julliard student and professional dancer, whereas Mai performed in a Drama piece devised by a Julliard alumni and professional actor.

Each evening was filled with lots of great activities - on the first night Mai performed a solo song for the rest of the festival and we enjoyed performances from all of the other schools. On Thursday, we attended Groundhog Day The Musical, and Friday evening included a Dinner Cruise in Hollywood. 

The experience was perfect for anybody who is interested in Performing Arts, regardless of previous experience.
