Alumni Dance Workshop: Sam Harding

Former student Samantha Harding came back to the Sixth Form to deliver an inspiring workshop to our first year Musical Theatre BTEC students. The workshop consisted of an interactive dance session followed by a detailed and informal Q&A.

Sam started the session by demonstrating a dance routine which she has choreographed as part of her undergraduate Dance course which she is studying at the prestigious Doreen Bird College of Dance, in London.

After demonstrating the routine, Sam and the students worked on rehearsing the piece which culminated in a group performance, where our students performed a degree standard piece of choreography.

Once the routine had been learned and performed, Sam then hosted an informal Q&A session where she covered topics such as student life, dance auditions, studying dance at higher education level and her own career aspirations.

The visit was appreciated by our students who were inspired by Sam’s passion for dance and her journey after studying at the Sixth Form College.
