Move It! at ExCel
On the 10th March 2023, our Year 12 dance students visited the World’s largest dance exhibition, Move It!, at the ExCel Centre. This event celebrates all forms of dance and performing arts. It promotes values of support, inclusion and collaboration.
The students were able to gain valuable insight into the different training and education routes available across the performing arts post-18. They visited stalls and were able to speak to various University providers, as well as conservatoires. This enabled them to consider the range of opportunities available to them, in addition to completing part of their coursework on the life of a dancer. Later in the day, the students were able to watch a range of performances from different dance institutions and were particularly impressed by the choreography and performance skills demonstrated by Performers College. They took part in a dance class themselves while at the event to advance their own skill set. One student even signed up for the freestyle stage, and as a result of a stunning performance, was offered a scholarship to an American Dance camp!
