The annual show comes near the end of the academic year, and brings the curtain down on an intensive two year programme in the Performing Arts department.
As well as putting on a show for friends and family, the students decided to donate the £140 raised from ticket sales to the Sick Children’s Trust and Candle-lighters Foundation in memory of HNC student Megan Fox who tragically lost her battle with leukaemia earlier this year. The money raised for the two charities now stands at an impressive £200 following HNC’s Got Talent earlier in the year.
Students performed a range of dance pieces which they had choreographed themselves, including body dysmorphia which was put together by by HNC’s Got Talent winner Andrew Torkornoo.
Logan Davenport and Miriam Clay – as well as Andrew – had further reason to celebrate, having been offered places at York St John University, Edge Hill and Leeds Metropolitan University respectively to study on full time Dance courses from September.
Catriona Perkins, course leader for Dance, said: “The showcase was a great way to finish a fantastic two years for our second years, and to mark the halfway point of their study for our first year students.
“They’ve all done really well to organise and promote the show, and should feel proud that they have raised a substantial sum of money to help two worthwhile charities.”
