A group of GCSE dance students enjoyed a performance developed by top choreographer Richard Alston. The students had the opportunity to sit in on a question and answer session with him prior to the show 'Overdrive' at the Derngate, Northampton.
Dance teacher Miss Duguid said: 'The show was really good and it was a great opportunity to see the work of a really acclaimed choreographer. The fact that the students saw him before the show was a really big deal. They said it was amazing, the company made the dance look so effortless and the lighting was creative. There was a live musician on stage; it gave the students an opportunity to see something just a bit different and it will support their GCSE as they will have the opportunity to write about Richard Alston's work in their exam.'
