Outstanding community performances at annual IGNITE Dance Show

Tuesday 28 January 2020

On Wednesday 22 January, Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) hosted its annual IGNITE Dance Show, where the college’s students and groups from the boroughs of Richmond, Hammersmith, Kingston and Hounslow performed various dance styles.

Hannah Fryer, RuTC Performing Arts teacher, said, “IGNITE is such an important and special event. This is its eighth consecutive year and we welcomed nine groups to perform with us this year alongside Richmond upon Thames College’s dancers, who gain an invaluable experience to network with other members of the performing arts community.”

Dance groups that performed at the sold out show included Kew Dance Arts, Twickenham School Dance Company, St James Youth Dance Company, Tiffin Dance Company, The MV Academy of Performing Arts, High Street Tap, Boundless Dance Company, BalletBoyz Youth Company and Babel School of Dance. Dancers of all ages impressed with a jazz number, tap performance, lyrical and contemporary techniques.

Marc Dodi, Head of Creative Industries at RuTC, said “IGNITE brings together the community of the local area, whilst showcasing the brilliant talent of our learners at Richmond upon Thames College. The joyous and energetic atmosphere from the sold out auditorium was matched by the passion and enthusiasm of the performers.”

RuTC thanks all the dance groups for their great performances and hopes the audience had a fantastic night.
