THEMES

BOROUGHBRIDGE HIGH SCHOOL, Boroughbridge, North Yorkshire
"Celebrity Circus"

    Celebrity Culture, from Bollywood to Hollywood, has an enormous impact on young people, influencing their aspirations, their behaviour and what they wear. This dance explores the glamour of celebrity culture, the media's influence on the stars and how it can make, break, manipulate and continually re-invent performing artists.

CANON LEE SPECIALIST ARTS COLLEGE, York
"Walk a Mile in Someone's Shoes"

    So many people in life think they would be happier if they were someone else. Our story shows four different situations where people wish to be someone different. A sister, a homeless woman, a street gang and a famous star show that if you walk a mile in another person's shoes you will realise that you are truly blessed.

COTTINGHAM HIGH SCHOOL, Cottingham, East Riding of Yorkshir
"The Journey"

    Let us take you on a journey where a twist of fate gives us a glimpse of what may lie beyond life. Is our destiny already mapped out or do the choices we make determine our fate ?

HEADLANDS SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY SCIENCE COLLEGE, Bridlington, East Riding of Yorkshire
"In Deep Water"

    Our piece explores the effects of climate change on our society in recent years - changeable weather and devastating flooding. Our vision become more futuristic as earth freezes over in a type of ice age. The message ? We must open our eyes to the threat of climate change and work together to combat it otherwise we are truly "In Deep Water".

HOWDEN SCHOOL AND TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE, Howden, East Riding of Yorkshire
"Would you be Tempted ?"

    Temptation becomes the original sin depicted in the Biblical story of Adam and Eve. Today, in a world consumed by lust, green and anger, we must be strong enough to resist the tempting but sinful paths laid before us. Our performance highlights the everyday lures we all face and reinforces the importance of our virtues, which should always prevail.

KINGS MILL SCHOOL, Driffield, East Riding of Yorkshire
"Sliding Doors"

    In life we make choices; which road to take, which path to walk, which door to open. The choices you make may be good or bad, but it is up to you which choice to make. This performance is based just around that, so let's make the right choice and hold on to the good things in life.

WOLDGATE COLLEGE, Pocklington, East Riding of Yorkshire
"Outside In"

    Gemma is a typical teenager who faces the challenge of being accepted as she struggles to fit in. Set in a world that is often superficial, will she succumb to peer pressure or will she find her own strength and identity ?

DRIFFIELD SCHOOL, Driffield, East Riding of Yorkshire
"Around the World in 80 days"

    Are you ready for a challenge and an adventure ? Phileas Fogg risked his reputation whan faced with the challenge of travelling around the world in 80 days. The task can seem daunting but every journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Join us on our journey inspired by Jules Verne's "Around the World in 80 days".
