Olivier Theatre hosts dance showcase

The Olivier Theatre played host to a stunning display of local dance talent at the annual Youth Dance Platform last weekend, giving young people the opportunity to perform on stage and see other performances from their contemporaries with the aim of celebrating and developing dance style and talent. The lively fast moving show comprised various short works by students from Bedales and Dunhurst, the Hampshire Youth Dance Company, Frensham Heights, Totton College, Amesbury School and Petersfield Academy of Dance. Dunhurst Block 2 pupils performed ‘Those magnificent men in their flying machines’ and Bedales AS Level exam trio performed ‘Shattered’. The Bedales Dance Company performed ‘I believe’, a student devised piece and the BAC group’s ‘Night Light’ saw dancing to an electronic score. Read more. View photos.
