PENDLETON SEASON OF SHOWS CONTINUES WITH DRAMATIC ‘TRIPTYCH’ DANCE

8th April 2015

Dance students from Salford City College’s Pendleton Sixth Form Centre continued to wow audiences as part of the Pendleton Season of Shows with a dramatic performance of ‘Triptych’. The dance was performed over three nights in March at the Eccleston Theatre.

‘Triptych’ is the name given to a work, such as an altarpiece, consisting of three painted or carved panels. The performances utilised this idea by presenting three aspects of the students’ training at Pendleton Sixth Form- the performance of class work, student choreography, and collaborative pieces created between students and staff.

The full BTEC Dance cohort was involved in this showcase, as well as students from the Technical Theatre course and A-level Dance. Over 50 students worked together, communicating and delivering the performances to a high standard, demonstrating the diverse and vibrant programmes offered at Pendleton.

“The students worked extremely hard on this project and the process has taught them valuable skills for their future prospects such as team work, creativity, dedication, professionalism,” commented Elena-Rose Yenulevich, who teaches Performing Arts at Pendleton Sixth Form Centre.

“Their commitment shone through on the evening’s performance and the show was well received by audience members. There has certainly been a buzz around the Dance department in the weeks following the shows, so huge congratulations to all involved!”
