Before Christmas we had our choreography assessments and I decided that it would be a good chance to show some of our work to you all.
Here are the three dances I performed in, and also my choreography.
Please remember it is filmed on the actual assessment, hence the moderation panel at the front, and the lighting is intended to be bright so the panel can watch the pieces back on video when considering marks. So may I suggest that you squint a bit and create some atmosphere with your imagination.
