This week, ten Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) Level 3 Dance students are preparing for their performance of ‘The Gilded Gala’.
Three performances are taking place across Tuesday and Wednesday in the college’s 120 seat auditorium.
The dancers are a combination of first and second year Level 3 Dance students who have self-choreographed many of the pieces they are performing.
The dance styles that are being showcased vary from Ballet, Contemporary, Lyrical, Jazz and Hip hop.
‘The Gilded Gala’ explores how in society today, our presentation of ourselves can be misleading of our true emotions. The performances illustrate the struggle people feel putting on a façade each day.
The show highlights the importance of supporting friends and family and looking after one and other in times of need.
RuTC Dance teacher Claire Guntrip explains that “The girls have worked amazingly together and they are so hardworking. I am proud of what they have achieved since September”.
