NTU Dance take to the stage for OPUS

NTU dance once again took to the stage on Sunday evening for their showcase event of the year; titled 'Opus', which in Latin translates to 'an artistic composition, especially in music'.

NTU dance once again took to the stage on Sunday evening for their showcase event of the year; titled 'Opus', which in Latin translates to 'an artistic composition, especially in music'.

With over 200 performers from NTU Dance and Funky Fresh Collective, the event continues to attract one of the biggest crowds of the year, with well over 400 family and friends in attendance.

The opening number of the show demonstrated all advanced members performing different styles of dance to an innovative progressive house track, which the shows’ title is derived from. This was only the start to a night of great entertainment.

The first half of the evening showed dances from a range of performers; city open class and intermediates, advanced tap, jazz and hip-hop, intermediate contemporary, lyrical and two Funky Fresh numbers. The standard of each performance was extremely high, with well-rehearsed routines and a genuine love to dance from each person on the stage.

The second half included creative and diverse dances such as intermediate jazz, Clifton open class and intermediates, advanced contemporary; lyrical and ballet, commercial, fusion (NTU Dance and Funky Fresh Collective) and two Funky Fresh dances. The dancers showed immense stamina and commitment throughout and really did themselves proud.

The show came to a breath-taking close, after the NTU Dance Committee surprised the crowd with their spin on the ‘Call On Me’ routine. It was a great way to end a fantastic night along with an explosion of purple and pink confetti at the end.

Whilst the show was a huge success, Dance always has the wider community in their thoughts. They raised approximately £400 for the John Van Geest Cancer Research centre, as each ticket purchased donated £1 to the charity.

Special thanks must go to Dance President, Isabel Gregson, and the rest of the committee, who spent many hours of hard work to put the show together. None of this would have happened without the coaches, Gareth Woodward and Marie Marriott, who both helped choreograph the routines, and made sure all of the dances were performed perfectly.

Make sure you follow Trent Dance on Twitter and Instagram, as they prepare for their upcoming competitions for advanced tap, lyrical, contemporary and hip-hop.
