Dance students at Southwark College put on ‘Dance Through Time’ performance for a live audience as part of their end-of-year assessments.
Students created a wide range of performances, drawing inspiration from various eras of dance, and displaying how genres have evolved through time. They performed pieces solo, in duets, or in groups, demonstrating their athletic and artistic ability. An audience of family and friends was also present to watch the show, giving the students experience performing and engaging with an audience.
Annette Cast, Principal at Southwark College, said: "Allowing our Dance students to present their routines in front of a live audience is a key part of their education and development as performers.
"At Southwark College, we strive to prepare our students for their next steps for further study and life in their chosen industry by helping them gain transferable skills in their courses and supporting them with enrichment activities and mental health workshops where they can develop their resilience and adaptability skills.”
Caine Goodridge-Harrison, a Dance student, said: “It was fantastic to have the opportunity to perform with my classmates in front of family and friends. The audience was very encouraging, which pushed us to be the best we could be while dancing. The show has definitely built my passion for dance, and it has made me excited about the shows we will do next year!"
