COHORT 11

Cohort 11 worked hard together for 12 weeks to present their amazing graduation performance.

During the evening there were three performances by the young people; Orbital, which was learnt by the dancers in only eight days, Cohesion which involved the dancers and dance artists working together to create this piece of choreography, and finally Fearless which was first performed by the group at The Point, Eastleigh in May after just three weeks of working together.

Our performance company, Wessex Girls:Wessex Boys, performed Run and there was a special performance by two of our performance company members Brandon and Claudia.

We were also very proud to celebrate the achievements of four of our Wessex Girls:WessexBoys – Brandon and Jaz who both left us to start university and Jade and Aston who started dance courses at college in September 2015.
