Students during a workshop with Gecko Theatre Company in October 2022

Gecko Theatre Workshop ( Published: 31/10/2022)

As part of the Performing Arts Department’s commitment to making vocational learning rooted in industry, Year 10 Dance students were given the opportunity to take part in a professional workshop.

Gecko Theatre sent Kenny Wing Tao Ho to deliver a fusion of contemporary dance and physical theatre to our Year 10 BTEC Performing Arts students. This provided students with the opportunity to discover what a professional technique class entails and gave them a deeper understanding of how companies devise and choreograph work.

Students were pushed to their limits both physically and mentally. They had to overcome some difficult challenges within the workshop, however, their professionalism and commitment to succeed meant that they produced some thought provoking work.

Such brilliant focus and commitment from the Year 10 dance group today. No hesitation in exploring new things like using the voice, emotions and breathing with movement.
Mr Kenny Wing Tao Ho, Gecko Theatre Company performer
