International dance company, Dance Manchester, provided budding dancers from Wigan & Leigh College with a body conditioning, techniques and creative workshop.
The Manchester-based company which is an established organisation who run creative projects in the region provided the College’s Level 3 and Higher National Diploma (HND) in Performing Arts students with innovative techniques delivered by international favourites.
During the workshop the talented students were encouraged by the industry professionals to participate in the Wigan Try Outs. The try outs will enable students to join a performance at the University of Salford’s New Adelphi Building hosted by Company Chameleon. Students will also have the opportunity to achieve an Arts Award which is awarded by Trinity College and the Arts Council.
Assistant Principal, Maxine Mealey, said, “The College provides students a whole host of opportunities to enhance their skill set, CV and ultimately their employability. Introducing the students to innovative workshops run by organisations such as Dance Manchester enables the students to develop techniques, network and engage with world-renowned companies. The students work with a range of companies, directors and industry professionals to expand their knowledge and their insight into the creative industry.”
