Verve Dance Company Workshop and Visit

2nd July 2015

Verve is the Postgraduate Company linked with the Northern School of Contemporary Dance. On June 23rd, 25 students from Hall Cross Academy, including prospective Y12s for the AS Dance course next year, participated in a workshop led by two Verve dancers Harriet(Cheshire, trained at NSCD) and Bryn (Bristol, trained at London Contemporary Dance School).  Our dancers learnt repertoire from Theo Clinkard’s ‘We Become Panoramic.’ Students then saw this in action during the performance of Verve’s national tour at CAST.   We also had a short Q&A session with the dancers about their training, ambitions and background which was very inspiring.

Verve comprises twelve dancers trained at some of the world’s leading conservatoires. Each year the company commissions leading choreographers to produce a dynamic and eclectic mixed bill of contemporary dance works.

A number of students spent last week in London experiencing some aspects of life in the world of performing arts. We took part in workshops led by professional performers and actors from Shakespeare’s Globe and Matilda, we took a tour of the National Theatre and watched Miss Saigon, Matilda and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the time. A very diverse, tiring, educational but fun experience. Thank you to all students for good company and a very pleasurable week

So we’re playing catch up with a few events and wanted to share some photos from a fantastic evening at lower school last month. The evening saw an ever growing number of students and groups perform in front of a pretty full house some quality performance work. This ranged from a vocal group, dance groups small and large, wind group, guitar group, upper school students working with lower school students culminating in an abridged version of Alice in Wonderland.

Enjoy some photos and a big well done to all students (And staff) involved.

Level 3 Medical Science Trips to Sheffield

25th June 2015

Throughout various dates this academic year the year 12 medical Science students have visited Sheffield University teaching laboratories to make paracetemol and analyse its purity.
These visits have introduced students to practical chemistry in a modern, well-equipped university teaching laboratory environment. Students undertake chemical synthesis and investigation and are able to use the department’s cutting edge analytical technology such as IR, NMR spectroscopy and gas chromatography.
Students are also set the task of identifying three unknown compounds by using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Mass Spectrometry and Infra red spectroscopy. The skills gained on this day are invaluable to our students.
