As promised, here are some pictures from Oldham College Performing Arts Department’s visit to New Bridge when they performed a preview of their annual ‘Dance Showcase’ which will be held in May at the Grange Theatre..
Our young people were treated to a fantastic performance by their Level 3 Extended Diploma students which incorporated a range of styles from ballet to jazz and included technical demonstrations and student choreography.
Oldham College’s ‘Twenty10 Dance Company’ who will be performing in a national competition at The Lowry this week (good luck!!) particularly inspired us with their sensitive piece ‘For Amanda’, exploring a sense of emotional expression around the potentially devastating effects of cyberbullying.
After the showcase, our Lumenus students took part in a workshop with the Oldham College students and were able to share ideas and pick up some new techniques..
We are very grateful to the students from Oldham College for such an enjoyable and inspiring visit – we hope to see you again soon!
