Pas de deux between university and school
Cllr John and Mrs Diane Hensley, Deputy Mayor and Mayoress of Hillingdon, with Colham Manor Primary pupils at the performance
HILLINGDON’S Deputy Mayor enjoyed a night of dance, thanks to a new collaboration and a lot of hard work.
Brunel Dance Show was opened by Year 5 pupils from Colham Manor Primary School, who had spent an hour a week over the last few months learning a routine, taught to them by volunteers from the Brunel Dance Club.
The pupils performed to parents, Brunel staff and students and Deputy Mayor Cllr John Hensley
and Deputy Mayoress Mrs Diane Hensley on Saturday, March 5.
The show was organised by university students involved in Brunel Dance Club.
As part of their community strategic plan, the Student Union has been opening up more of their events to the community.
Isabel Lewenz, a mechnical aerospace and civil engineering student at Brunel, who managed the dance performance said: “We approached
Colham Manor Primary after their successful performance in the matinee last year.
“This gave members of dance club the opportunity to teach dance to children and get Brunel involved in the local community.
“We invited the Mayor as we wanted to show all the hard work that members have been doing in and outside of classes over the past three months, and also our tribute to Brunel’s 50th Anniversary.”
