Millfield dancers enjoyed an immersive workshop with musical theatre performer Andrew Chadwick, who recently appeared in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast where he danced the role of Lumiere.
Andrew has vast experience in various well-known musicals including lead roles such as Rusty in Starlight Express, Mungojerry in Cats, Bobby C in Saturday Night Fever, dance caption in Fame and he is currently performing and playing the lead role in Disney’s hit musical Tarzan.
The pupils learnt several musical theatre and commercial dance routines, including work to The Greatest Showman soundtrack. The dancers had a superb afternoon of dance and a wonderful insight into Andrew’s life as a professional dancer.
Over 100 Millfield pupils currently take park in dance as part of their Games programme and the school offers over 30 classes throughout the week.
Millfield’s Head of Dance, Julian Boyd says, “It was a pleasure to welcome Andrew to Millfield to work with out pupils. Meeting and working with such an accomplished dancer is truly inspiring for those who dream of dancing on the West End stage. I hope that his experience will drive more pupils to believe they can follow in Andrew’s footsteps and be part of incredible projects such as Tarzan.”
