Dance at Regents International School Pattaya
Our primary ballet club develops our students’ coordination, balance, and flexibility, while our fun-packed Zumba classes are full of noise and laughter. We also introduce our students to jazz, modern, and contemporary dance, as well as traditional Thai styles.
Regional Dance Project ‘Dance Unites’
‘Dance Unites’ brought students together across Nord Anglia schools in Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia. Led by our resident dance specialist, students explored commercial choreography in response to a set hip-hop track. Students created their own choreography and worked with dance teachers to collaboratively develop their material. This was then filmed and edited to create a final video.
‘The Heather Hansen Project’
Students took part in a collaborative project fusing movement with art, exploring the concept of performance art with reference to the artist Heather Hansen, who creates kinetic art on large canvases. She imprints her body into the canvas by performing a series of repetitive movements to create organic forms full of motion and dynamic energy.
Students echoed the same processes used by the artist:
- Physicality of the body.
- The accumulation of energy.
- Sketching live movement.
- Imprinting into the floor.
- Exploring performance art.
The workshops also formed part of our IBDP students' art projects, widening their knowledge of mixed medium projects.
Uliana's Solo Performance
Uliana's solo performance was choreographed by our very own dance specialist at Regents. "Uliana has solid technical training in dance, but she was struggling to find her own sense of expression and performance presence. I worked with her to find a greater connection with the movement and music. She has started to transform herself in to a truly three dimensional performer."
Dance teaches our students that being unique is better than being perfect. The greatest performers are not always made of their technique but of their passion. We're so proud of our students who worked together to overcome their nerves and perform with commitment and confidence.
