COHORT 10

Cohort 10’s amazing graduation performance was a celebration of the hard work and committment they put in over 10 weeks.

During the evening you saw three performances by the young people; Solo Dancing, which was learnt by the dancers in only five days, Moving Image which involved the dancers and dance artists working together to create this piece of choreography, and finally Cast which was first performed by the group at the Haymarket Theatre, Basingstoke in February after just three weeks of working together.

Our performance company, Wessex Girls: Wessex Boys, performed Redemption. This was a piece choreographed by two of our company members, Brandon Clarke and Claudia Scaringella with support from Hannah De Cancho the company choreographer.

Ofsted chose Wessex Dance Academy as an example of good practice.
