COHORT 07

Cohort 07’s graduation performance celebrates the hard work, commitment and energy that our very special group of dancers created over 10 weeks at the Wessex Dance Academy.

It included four inspiring performances, the first piece, Weightless, was choreographed by Yael Flexer especially for our young people to develop their dance technique skills. The second piece, Moonlight, was performed by our wonderful performance company Wessex Girls: Wessex Boys. Our dancers then shared, Ivy, a piece choreographed by the young people themselves. The evening concluded with Cast which was first performed on the 13th February 2014 at The Berry Theatre after the young people had only been working together for three weeks.
