Young Rickmansworth and Watford dancers ready to shine on their biggest stage yet

Over 30 lucky dancers from Rickmansworth and Watford will be giving the performance of a lifetime on July 13 this year at Silverstone for this summer’s British Grand Prix. 

Dancers from dance and performing arts school, Rise Studios, have been rehearsing for what is said to be the ‘biggest mass movement’ production of its kind at Silverstone, for the British Grand Prix 2019. 

A total of 2,000 young dancers from around the globe will be taking part in this extraordinary event, which is run by Pro-Excel, a mass movement production company who have been delivering mass movement events since 2002. 

Claire Munday, Principal of Rise Studios, said: “We had two days of gruelling rehearsals with the Pro-Excel team. The students worked their socks off, as some of the choreography was quite challenging for a two-day rehearsal, but through pure grit and determination they learnt it all, and are now raring to go in July. This really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our students and we are so proud of how they’ve risen to the challenge.”

Rise Studios, which holds sessions at both St John’s Church on Berry Lane and Rickmansworth School, is a dance and performing arts school heavily geared towards encouraging positive mental health in their teenage students. 

Claire added: “We pride ourselves on looking after our student’s mental health and helping them achieve their true potential. Events like this really do make the students feel good about themselves and we feel very privileged to be a part of it”
