COHORT 16

Cohort 16 worked hard together for 10 weeks to present their amazing graduation performance.

During the evening there were three performances by the young people; The Fading Horizon, was created by guest choreographer, Matthew Winston, and our very own Emma Winston and this piece was learnt by the dancers in just five days. The third piece, Juntos, was a result of a collaborative process between the dancers and the dance artists. Our final piece, Let Go, was first performed by the company after just three weeks of working together at The Berry Theatre in February.

Alongside the cohort tonight we were proud to present a new piece of choreography by our performance company, Wessex Girls:Wessex Boys, and we were thrilled to welcome new members Saffron and Sonny who were both members of cohort 15.
