BA Dance students had a great time performing at their end of year performance during Creative Arts week. Choreographies from international choreographers Zubaidah Saebu, Jack Webb and James Wilton were part of the programme and an audience saw two energetic and varied shows!
Third year dance students Charlotte Brinksman and Gabriella Garroway presented a poster at the Annual Regional Learning and Teaching Conference 2014 North East Universities (3 Rivers Consortium), Durham University (Collingwood College) on 27th March 2014.
The poster discussed their experience of a 3 month Erasmus exchange at the Inter-University Centre in Berlin and was well received by delegates.
As part of their Erasmus exchange stay in Berlin three dance students, Charlotte Brinskman, Gabriella Garroway, and Sophie Read, took part in SoS (Students on Stage) at the Ada Studio in Berlin, on May 18th & 19th. The SoS is a platform that allows the chance for students to stage their work. The piece “TCW Refined” was a rework of a choreography that had been created at Teesside University in March.
