On 10 June, groups of RuTC students from the Dance, Music, Travel and Tourism and Catering and Hospitality departments took part in the York House Society’s Centenary Celebration.
The Centenary Celebration was to commemorate 100 years of the York House Society and its achievements during that time in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It took place in Clarendon Hall at York House and featured a variety of performances from RuTC Dance and Music students, including two piano solos and an Irish fiddle recital.
The dancers performed three individual dances, each complete with matching outfits and music from numerous genres including classical, pop and jazz.
RuTC Travel and Tourism students welcomed guests to the hall and took them on guided tours of York House.
Alongside the Travel and Tourism students, Catering teacher Neal Hook and his students, provided cold and hot drinks, as well as savoury and dessert canapés to the 70 guests.
Guests were thoroughly impressed with both Music and Dance performances, as well as the professionalism and capability of all the students involved in the celebration.
Dance teacher, Hannah Booth helped organise RuTC students’ involvement in the celebration and said, “The Centenary Celebration at York House was an amazing opportunity for RuTC to showcase how brilliant our students are, and we accomplished just that.
“The Dancers and Musicians performed their sets without a hitch and the Catering and Travel and Tourism students did a wonderful job in making sure the overall event went smoothly and that all the guests had an enjoyable, memorable day.
“York House is an important, magnificent piece of Richmond history and we are extremely proud to have contributed to its 100-year anniversary celebration.”
