Eastleigh College Level 2 and Level 3 Dance students recently showcased their dance skills at their end of year show, titled ‘Remote’.
The highly energetic show was performed to a sell-out audience and included a wide range of styles such as ballet, urban, jazz, musical theatre and contemporary dance, with group performances as well as solos. The technical choreography was mostly created by the students themselves, and has been developed over the past few months, along with a great deal of enthusiastic practising and rehearsing.
‘Remote’ is the centrepiece of the students’ final year assessments, as in addition to being graded on their choreography and performance, the students have also been learning about the social, economic and artistic history of dance.
April Inglis, Course Manager, believes the Show really helps students to gain confidence and learn skills essential to the industry. “Performing in the Show gives the students experience in the whole performance process, including choreography, rehearsal and working as a team”.
