COHORT 18

Cohort 18 worked hard together for 11 weeks to present their amazing graduation performance.

The evening opened with a piece made by Hannah Ballard, As I Am, which was learnt by the dancers in just ten days. The second piece, With Every Step, was performed by students from the University of Winchester who have been working with Hannah Martin-Reilly over the past seven weeks. Our third piece, Magnetism, was created as part of the collaborative choreography element of the programme which involved the young people working with the dance artists to develop their own movement. Finally, the evening closed withCorners of My Mind, which was first performed by the cohort at the Academy on 10th October, after just three weeks of working together.

That was the most atmospheric, joyful, relaxing and uplifting performance I have ever seen.
I was enraptured.

Beautiful, mesmerising and so moving. Wonderfully choreographed and a lovely range of music.
A very talented group of dancers. Thanks you for inviting me, it was an absolute pleasure to watch.
