Dante Academy shines at Gosport Music Festival!
Well done and congratulations to all the students at Dante Academy of Performing Arts who on Saturday
15th November, took part in the annual Musical Festival in Gosport. The Academy were awarded first and second place in their class
gaining marks of 87 and 89, extremely high distinctions.
The Adjudicator was thrilled with their performances, which were performed with dialogue linking a selection of songs
from the musical ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and the Broadway musical ‘Nunsense’.
The students were praised for their focus and professionalism, with comments such as, “A thoroughly enjoyable piece,
everyone played their part with such conviction, the staging was very imaginative and the singing strong”, “A well sung and imaginative performance, diction all great, I could hear all the words”,
“Very enjoyable songs with good backing singing and harmony”.
Principals Zia Wheeldon and Becky Jenkins, and teachers Anne Allen and Jodie Anthony are so proud of the student’s
achievements. “They have had the opportunity to shine and have done us proud!.”
