More than 140 dancers packed a school’s stage, performing dance moves to tracks from top Hollywood movies.

Pupils from all years at Bay House School in Gomer Lane, Gosport took part in the kinosthetic dance show.

Its name is a combination of the German word for cinema – kino – and kinesthetic, which means expressing meaning with movement – in this case with the body.

Golden-clad Katie Bull, 15, a Year 10 pupil, played the role of a Bond girl in the Goldfinger scene.

She said: ‘It’s very contemporary and it had the proper moves in it – the teachers were good at teaching us.’

Fellow Bond girl Millie Battersby, 14, a Year 9 pupil said the cast put in hours learning the show from September – even rehearsing on Sundays.

She said: ‘Every dance hasn’t stayed the same from when you first learn it – it develops and changes and everyone had input.’

And the hard work with dance teachers Helen Jones, Sarah Baggert and Kate McManus paid off, with the pupils wowing friends and family, along with primary schools in Gosport.
