COHORT 26

Cohort 26 have celebrated their achievements after just 12 weeks, having joined us at the end of April.

The first piece during the evening was The Other Side, which was performed by the cohort after just 3 weeks working together with the academy in May. The second piece Together Apart, was made by the dancers with the support of the dance artists as part of our “collaborative choreography process”. The final piece, With Every Step, was an epic 20 minute piece which has challenged the dancers and showcases the process they have made during their time with us.

All three piece showed us that Cohort 26 had been on a remarkable journey and have worked so very hard to learn in such a short time.

We were thrilled that we could bring Wessex Dance Academy to life over the past months in spite of the considerable hurdles of the past year. More hurdles undoubtedly lie ahead and we need your support to continue changing young people’s lives. You’ve seen the difference your donations can make.
