Chichester College students were dressed to impress at Dance Live

20 March 2023

Chichester College brought home the best costume design award at the recent Dance Live! heats in Portsmouth.

Competing against teams from schools and colleges across the local area, the college also placed third in the competition, impressing the judges with the range of dance styles and the captivating choreography displayed in their piece ‘Every Adventure Requires A First Step’. 

The composition was a true collaboration between students from a range of courses, including media and creative sound design students who helped to design and edit the soundtrack and screen content, stage management students who designed and created the props for the performance as well as the dancers who performed beautifully.

And, of course, the college’s costume design students created the award-winning costumes to help bring the performance to life. 

Helen Loftus, Principal at Chichester College, said: “We’re so proud of our students across the creative and performing arts department. To come third, competing against eight other schools and colleges who put on outstanding performances themselves, and to win an award for costume design is a fantastic achievement.

“I know the team worked incredibly hard to put this performance together, working collaboratively with a whole range of students with different specialisms. They have really done themselves and the college proud.”

Dance Live! is a revolutionary dance event for schools and colleges, created by The Guildhall Trust. It embraces the digital world and sees students in schools and colleges compete with choreographed routines to the backdrop of a giant digital screen with students displaying a range of skills, from dance and performance to off-stage technical skills and creative design.
