THEMES

BAYSGARTH SCHOOL, Barton-Upon-Humber, North Lincolnshire
"Take me out!"

    The whisky is watered down, tension fills the air, the dancers have seen better days. Along with cards and guns they help distract desperate men from committing desperate acts. The good folk of Calamity know that a barbaric act of violence will unleash anger from their native neighbours. Can peace and harmony be stronger than the bullet and the arrow?

COSTESSEY HIGH SCHOOL, New Costessey, Norwich
"The Shadow of Fear"

    What is your biggest fear? It can be anything your imagination intensifies, from a childhood nightmare to an adult trepidation. Your safe haven can become your downfall and you can find yourself entrapped in your consciousness. The darkness can construct a storm. Beware of the shadows in your mind.

"Blood Diamond"

    We highlight the plight of the Africans forced to mine diamonds by rebel militias. The diamonds are traded illegally and the money is used to buy weapons that cause further misery. Some of the diamonds find their way into the legitimate market, but would customers be so happy if they knew that the stones had been paid for in blood ?

ST THOMAS └ BECKET CATHOLIC COLLEGE, Wakefield, West Yorkshire
"Around The World in 80 Days"

    An exploration of one man's journey to find and prove himself to his doubters leads to the discovery of the different cultures of the world. As Phileas Fogg travels the globe, he explores their heritage, taking what he has learnt back to England. The end result: a reflection, celebration and rejoicing of the multicultural society in which we live today.

"The Crucible"

    In 1692, nineteen innocent men and women were hanged for witchcraft. Four others died in jail as they awaited trial. How did a village get caught up in such madness? Enter a world very different from our own and discover the fears, struggles and beliefs of everyday people in Salem.

LONGCROFT SCHOOL AND PERFORMING ARTS COLLEGE, Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire (Premier Team)
"Spirit of the Nation"

    Eva Peron, a rags to riches story, a young woman's aspirations of glitz and glamour that turned into a journey of political strength and unity to the people of Argentina. Set within the busy streets, a fusion of music and dance discovers with passion, love and powerful influence how one poverty-stricken child became the "Spiritual Leader of a Nation".

SOUTH HOLDERNESS TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE, Preston, Hull (Premier Team)
"You only have life time to make the difference!!!"

    A cross-section of a house highlights a family using too much water, heat, electricity and producing lots of garbage. In a light-hearted, abstract way the dance illustrates how what we all do affects not just our harmony, but that of all inhabitants of the globe, hopefully making you think you only have life time to make the difference.
