Andover Campus Dance students perform in their summer Dance Show!
Andover Campus summer dance performance showcased an incredible amount of talent. The dedication and hard work of the students and staff shone through in their performance and demonstrated the hub of ability, expertise and passion that the Creative and Performing Arts team nurture and develop.
After 5 weeks of hard work and practice, the students performed in The Lights theatre, the local cultural centre with a programme of comedy, theatre and dance. Situated on the college campus the facility lends itself to the performing arts department as another opportunity for students to take the stage and reach larger audiences. The Dance Show is a fantastic opportunity for Andover Campus students to come together and work towards a common goal as both first and second years perform in the show.
Students at Andover Campus are supported by staff who focus on every student individually, offering a personalised approach to learning, enabling each student to reach their full potential. Supporting this Andover Campus is in the top 5% in the entire country for ‘Value Added’; a measure to the degree to which a student not only fulfil but achieve grades beyond their original potential.
Dance Lecturer, Alicia Barnett said: “The summer dance show was a great success, and I am so proud of each and every student involved! The year 2 dance students produced this show taking on responsibilities including: choreography, admin, marketing, hair/makeup/costume, managing and coaching. They have worked so hard to make the final product one to remember and it truly was.
We had great feedback from the audience about the energy and wide range of dance styles which included Hiphop, African, Commercial, Musical Theatre and Contemporary. This show was also in collaboration with, our local youth company, AYDC and the year 10 dance students from John Hanson Community School.
The overall success of this show has left us all on a high and I am so excited to follow our second-year dance students’ as they progress and see where their journey takes them.”
Well done to all those involved in this year’s fantastic Summer Dance Show from all of us at Andover Campus.
