    "Stop, Look and Listen!"

      "A heartbroken mother has made a desperate plea to parents after her teenage son was killed by a motorbike as he listened to his iPod." Every year teenagers are injured as a result of listening to their iPods whilst crossing roads. The message is plain and simple and could make a difference between life or death. Stop, Look and Listen!

    ORIEL HIGH SCHOOL, Crawley, West Sussex
    "Unshackled"

      A slave is a person or persons who is the legal property of another and controlled by another. However, everyone is entitled to their freedom.

    MILLAIS SCHOOL, Horsham, West Sussex
    "Deceptive Research"

      Our dance is an anti-whaling campaign. These beautiful mammals are harassed at high speeds until exhausted and breathless. Harpoons strike and leave the whales thrashing, bleeding in agony. Whalers haul the whales close where they are shot and strung up alongside the ship. Once dragged aboard, their carcasses are hacked apart in total disregard. Murdered. To the brink of extinction.

    QUEEN ELIZABETH II SILVER JUBILEE SCHOOL, Horsham, West Sussex
    "The Best Things in Life are Free"

      Are the best things in life free? Does money make the world go round? Do you want it all and do you want it now? We have used our Rock Challenge theme to explore what makes us happy. Our results show that most things do cost money - all except the three most important: love, laughter, and good health.

    ST. PAUL'S CATHOLIC COLLEGE, Burgess Hill, West Sussex
    "51"

      A gang is a group of people who, through the organisation, formation and establishment of an assemblage, share a common identity. Young people join gangs to have friends, to be accepted, respected and to feel a sense of belonging. Last year 51 young people were killed as a result of gang violence. The youngest of these was 10.

    TANBRIDGE HOUSE SCHOOL, Horsham, West Sussex
    "SP "TRAPPED" ACE"

      When does space move from being large to being small? How can you feel trapped when space gives freedom? Our piece explores the differences between Claustrophobia and Agoraphobia and the serenity and anxiety that can be cause by changes to physical space.

    THE FOREST SCHOOL, Horsham, West Sussex
    "A Tale Of Two Seas"

      As stories of modern-day piracy become all too familiar in our daily news reports, one young boy gets drawn into a dream world of high drama and underground crime on the high seas.

    THE HOLY TRINITY C of E SCHOOL, Crawley, West Sussex
    "The Party"

      The story is about a young boy who is, for the first time, left home alone by his parents. He decides to hold a secret house party whilst they are gone. With a mix of music, fun and irresponsibility the party gets out of control and starts to go wrong. What will the parents find when they get home?

    THE WORTHING COLLEGE, Worthing, West Sussex
    "Fear; Lies and Accusations"

      The Crucible by Arthur Miller can be seen as symbolic of the paranoia that pervaded America in the 1950s. Our dance employs the storyline to explore the play's key themes: intolerance, hysteria, ignorance and persecution. The story begins with dancing evocative of the era. The persecution and death of the accused in the final scenes leaves a community in mourning.
