Jamaican reggae artisit visits HOHS

On Tuesday our Year 9 girls enjoyed a reggae dance workshop run by Troydon Bent, a Jamaican reggae artist currently touring the UK to promote his new album.

Already a talented and well-known dancer within the Jamaican dance fraternity, he drew inspiration from his reggae heroes – Bob Marley, Gregory Isaacs, Gyptian and Jah Cure, and decided to set up his own record label – Gidians Records – in 2009.

Troydon has always been passionate about helping the youth – especially those who are determined to succeed and make a difference to their life and that of others. He believes that by sharing his passion for music and dance with others it will hopefully inspire them to express themselves creatively.

“During my time at Hethersett Old Hall School I provided the students with an opportunity to learn something from a wider level of life and learn from a professional dancer,” Troydon said. “Through building the dance routine, the students were able to focus on a goal and take the necessary steps to achieve it – a skill which is essential in today’s modern life”.

Our energetic pupils certainly had a great time learning some new choreography and dance moves and we’re sure they’ll be keeping an ear out for Troydon’s music over the years to come!
