Dance show at Loughborough’s Charnwood College is a sell out

Talented students at Loughborough’s Charnwood College, part of the David Ross Education Trust, put on a dazzling performance at their annual dance show. 


More than 120 students from Year 7 to Year 13 showcased their talents through a variety of dance techniques, including break dancing and commercial performances.


Particular highlights from this year’s show included a number of GCSE street dances and A Level contemporary pieces.


Dan Neal, Principal at Charnwood College, said: “Our students have put in an incredible amount of hard work into their performances and they delivered a fantastic show.


“Opportunities like performing at our annual dance show, and working closely with a number of professionals from the Rambert Contemporary Dance Company, the Royal Ballet and the Shakespeare School Festival on a regular basis, enables our students to experience first-hand what they can achieve to explore their passions and discover new talents.” 




As part of the David Ross Education Trust, Charnwood College believes that every child should have the chance to create, compose, and perform, as well as to visit and participate in extraordinary work.


Though a number of incredible opportunities, including the annual Charnwood College Dance Show, young people are encouraged to unlock their potential by developing their character and talent, and increasing their knowledge and understanding.


Charnwood College is committed to providing students with a high quality arts and cultural education. Students benefit from the delivery of inspirational learning programmes, including the David Ross Education Trust’s pioneering enrichment programme and Art Council England’s Artsmark programme. The secondary school has also been awarded the prestigious Gold School Games Mark Award in recognition of the variety and breadth of its sporting opportunities.


Charnwood College will be holding a Sixth Form Open Evening from 6.00pm – 8.30pm on Thursday 26th October. The school will also be hosting a Year 6 Open Morning from 9.00am – 12.00pm. Guests will be able to speak with staff from various departments, as well as taking an exclusive tour of the fantastic facilities on offer.
