Ipswich High School for Girls Dance Department presents: ‘Video Killed The
Radio IHS Star’.
The birth of MTV saw the rise of music videos which sparked their popularity, with people choosing to watch videos rather than listen to music just on the radio. As music videos became more elaborate, we saw artists incorporating dance in to their production in order to draw in their audience, think the ‘Moonwalk’, ‘Vogue’ and more recently ‘Cha Cha Slide’…
We celebrate some of the most iconic music videos of the last forty years and use them as inspiration in creating new visual ideas. The show features Ipswich High School for Girls pupils from Year 3 up to Year 13 and includes the winners of our IHS Young Dancer 2017 award.
