The College's Dance students have benefitted from no less than 3 workshops in recent weeks. They have been given the experience of working with professionals in 3 distinct styles.
Rolling Stock—Starlight Express with Sam Foker
Working with Sam Foker, a current cast member of Starlight (both in the UK and Germany), the students were able to develop an understanding of the choreographic style used within the production of Starlight Express and developed an adaptation of the “Rolling Stock” choreography for performance within Eclectic Fusion 5 as part of their Musical Theatre assessment.
Kathak workshop—with Sonia Sabri Dance Company
Working with the workshop leader 2nd year students were able to explore a range of rhythms and stepping patterns within the Kathak style and have used this knowledge and material to support development of choreography as part of the Bombay Dreams to Lion King choreographic project.
3 Fall Dance Co workshop
The 3 Fall Dance Co workshop explored elements of the current repertoire and provided the Strode’s Dance students with an opportunity to explore work studies at university level.
