As part of BTEC performing Arts Dance, the Y10’s and a few Y11’s took part in a dance workshop delivered by a professional practitioner from Phoenix Dance Company. This is a well known contemporary repertoire whose works have entertained audiences all over the world. Students studied a piece by Christopher Bruce called shadows.
All the BTEC students worked extremely hard in the workshop which lasted two and a half hours. The warm up was almost an hour long which stunned some of our students who thought it was actually the routine and not a warm up. All students learned new skills that they can take with them and use in future choreography classes. Following on from the workshop, students were invited to watch Phoenix perform at Barnsley Civic theatre.
