Furthest from the Sea

This project involved students from the HND performing arts course at Chesterfield College, the aim was to devise a piece of work to be performed at the 'Furthest from the Sea' festival in Derby. The students based the performance on the theme of technology, it's impact on modern life and relationships. They gained an insight into working as a professional company as well as developing their performance skills.

 

Barnsley College

A presentation for HND performing arts and music degree students at Barnsley College, focusing on the history and development of Qdos and giving an insight into how the organisation operates. Students also participated in interactive group exercises to give them an experience of a practical workshop.

 

Technique Classes

 

A satellite contemporary dance class was delivered weekly for students enrolled on the Northern School of Contemporary Dance 'Centre for Advanced Training' (CAT) scheme at Barnsley College. The CAT scheme is part of a national intensive dance training programme for 13-18 year olds who display exceptional potential and passion for dance and allows them to attend five classes a week whilst still in education and living at home to prepare for further dance training. The aim of the regular weekly sessions is to provide students living in the Barnsley area with a regular technique class in their locality, so they don't have to travel to Leeds each week. The classes aimed to improve and develop alignment, strength, placement, flexibility and musicality to increase stylistic knowledge and improve overall contemporary dance technique and performance skills.
