This March, 60 Oathall students showcased their dancing and performance talents by competing in 2016 Be your Best Rock Challenge. The event, held at The Hawth Theatre in Crawley takes place in front of a large audience and involves schools from across the region competing against each other in a dance contest.

Oathall’s dance, titled, ‘Is Alice in Wonder Land?’ focuses on a young girl with mental health issues who struggles to distinguish between reality and her perception of reality, the so-called “Wonderland”. Students were involved in the whole process and contributed to the development of choreography, costume, set and make-up. On the day, the dancers were also supported by stage crew, hosts and of course, staff.

Oathall was placed 4th overall and were rewarded with 9 awards of excellence in several categories. We were also pleased to have been voted into first place by the other competing schools for the school that most embodied the ‘Spirit of Rock Challenge’.
