Talented Dance and Performing Arts students from Burnley College Sixth Form Centre - and young people who take part in the extra-curricular Dance Academy - wowed audiences with their skills and expertise in the 2019 Dance Showcase.
Staged in the College's own professional Performance Theatre, 19 dancers took part in the showcase, which is one of the highlights of the year for students on A Level Dance, Advanced Level Dance and Advanced Level Performing Arts programmes.
The showcase featured a variety of styles, including contemporary, street and tap dance, as well as musical and performance theatre. Money raised on the evening through voluntary donations will be sent to Whale and Dolphin Conservation, as one of the showcase's popular pieces was based on killer whales in captivity.
Students approaching the end of their courses at College who appeared in the showcase are:
- Chloe Bond, who has been offered a place at the University of Cambridge to study Education, English, Drama and the Arts
- Gregor and Abigail Mann, who have secured places at the prestigious Northern School of Contemporary Dance
