Talented students of all ages came together on 30 March for the return of the hugely popular dance show, ‘The Works’.
Performed in the College’s Daphne Collman Auditorium, students from years 7 to 12 delivered an array of dance styles, ranging from contemporary to lyrical, Bollywood-inspired to modern. The show also heralded the first ever public performance by ‘The Movement Platform’, an all-male dance group, whose two performances received rapturous applaud.
The presented work was a culmination of the students’ own choreography and work produced in the College’s thriving dance clubs. The group performances, including innovative and interactive set design, were punctuated with solo pieces from incredibly talented dancers including Year 10 Eleanor Skinner and Year 11 students Holly Flory and Ellie Jackson.
The performance was met with huge acclaim, with one audience member commenting: “It is quite incredible that there is this level of talent and dedication in the student body. The performances were brilliantly performed and it was obvious that a lot of hard work had gone into such fantastic pieces.”
Teacher of Performing Arts and Dance, Sarah Wilkinson, was extremely proud of the performances: “Once again, the standard of work showcased was exceptional and all of our students performed in such a passionate and professional manner. The rise in act diversity from last year is testament to the highly talented students we have in all year groups. I cannot praise the students enough and we are looking forward to growing this incredible show year on year.”
