Summary for the day

What a brilliant day! Combat action theatre workshop, lunch at Grand central station, then amazing views from the ‘Top of the Rock’ (the Rockefeller centre), finished up with a brilliant night at the Hard Rock Cafe with the pupils wearing excellent fancy dress and singing and dancing and doing Ballard proud!

The pupils were lucky enough to be trained by an expert in action fight scenes who has worked with stars such as Bruce Willis.

How’d the staff do?

The costumes were amazing for the fancy dress and the pupils wowed the New Yorkers whilst we walked to and from the restaurant through Times Square.

Overall it has been a very busy but fantastic day, and the pupils are really looking forward to some shopping in Macy’s tomorrow!
