Dancers from Samworth Church Academy have been chosen to perform at the opening ceremony of the England vs Samoa rugby union international at Twickenham on 22nd November.

The students are currently in training and will join dancers from three other schools based in Corby, Solihull and Leicester.

A four day workshop has been running in each school by teachers from Proexcel, a dance company who are coordinating the dance at the match. When the students from the four schools perform at the match, it will be the first time they will have danced together, so training is important to get the right cohesion in front of an expected crowd of 82,000.

George Fryer, a Year 7 student said: “I have a few nerves but have danced in front of crowds before because I have competed for a while now. I hope I can help the other students stay calm on the day!”

Dance teacher Hannah Lake added: “We are excited about dancing on the hallowed turf at Twickenham.”
