A few Year 11 GCSE students went to watch Phoenix Dance Theatre at the Peacock Theatre.  They saw three pieces including Shadows choreographed by Christopher Bruce which is on the GCSE Dance syllabus and the much anticipated Windrush: Movement of the People choreographed by Sharon Watson, which is a very topical piece.  This illustrated the lives of the Caribbean people that travelled from the Caribbean to England or ‘the mother land’.  The GCSE students enjoyed this dance the best as it had a modern soundtrack and live, inspirational music.  A small band sang Amazing Grace and Shackles which had our group dancing in the aisles.
