A number of our Year 8 students have taken part in a two-hour workshop with Exim Dance Company.

During the workshop on 9 January, the students developed their technical and performance skills through Contemporary Dance. Not only was this workshop an opportunity to develop their dancing, but to challenge, reflect and take pride in their work. 

Miss Adams said: “I have never seen a group of students engage this much in a workshop before! They were asking questions, challenging themselves and adapting movement where suitable. I was extremely proud of what the students achieved in such a short space of time.”

Artistic Director at Exim Dance, Laura Nightingale, was also impressed: “The Year 8 students were by far the most professional students I have taught for a workshop.

“The maturity and respect within the room really helped support an enriching environment. It was very hard to select one student who stood out, as all the students in the workshop were fantastic.”

Miss Adams said: “They are a fantastic dance company and we are looking forward to working with them again very soon.”
