Local Dance Groups Come Together for Fifth Year of IGNITE at Richmond upon Thames College

Tuesday 24 January 2017

On Wednesday 18th January 2017, Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) played host to the annual dance platform IGNITE. The performance, which now in its fifth year, brings together dance groups from the local area and across London for a spectacular evening of celebration and creative talent.

The audience watched RuTC Ignite Dance Show 2017 Boys performances from 10 dance groups with each act exploring a different theme including the CODA Dance Company giving a voice to local residents about the regeneration of Alton Estate in Roehampton through their dance ‘Echoes’. Other groups that performed included Tiffin School from Kingston upon Thames, Kew Dance Arts from Richmond and Orleans Park School from Twickenham. 

RuTC dancers performed ‘Dancing on my own’ and ‘Alive’ which were both choreographed by Performing Arts Lecturer, Hannah Fryer. Hannah says that it was 'a fantastic evening' and the platform provides 'a great opportunity to celebrate the talent of local dancers’.

Nilar Zaw, Director RuTC Ignite Dance Show 2017 In The Woods of Creative, Cultural and Social Sciences, commented 'what is special about the event is that it is a celebration of our partnership with the local community, bringing together people of all ages and ability. It is a wonderful evening and a great opportunity for our students to work collaboratively but also to showcase their talent.’ She added that it is always one of the 'highlights' of her year.

All second year BTEC Performing Arts Dance students have the opportunity to participate in the IGNITE Dance Platform. To find out more about the course visit our Open Event on Tuesday 7th February 2017.
