A group of Year 1 and Year 2 Level 3 Dance students at West Cheshire College were put through their paces this month by The Hammond School dance teacher, Anthea Garret, during a unique workshop, aimed at providing young hopeful dancers with an insight into life at the dance school and its audition process.
Workshops are a major feature of West Cheshire College’s Dance Programmes, as it believes that they enrich students’ learning and aids with their personal development and future progression. The College strongly believes in partnerships like this one with The Hammond School and looks forward to the annual visit from Anthea, its Outreach Co-ordinator.
Former West Cheshire College Dance student, Molly Dutton, who is now studying at The Hammond School, also attended the session to pass on her knowledge.
Speaking about the workshop, Programme Leader for Dance, Musical Theatre and Productions, Sharon Brown said: “We were delighted to welcome back Anthea again to the College as her workshops always get a great response from all our Dance students, enabling them to get a real insight into life at the Dance school and its audition process. The students thoroughly enjoyed her visit and I know so many of them took away valuable learnings, which will help with their development and their approach to their own progression.”
If you would like to audition for a place starting in September 2017, West Cheshire College is holding auditions on the 16th January , where prospective students will spend a day participating in dance classes and watching demonstrations from its current students.
