Dance students meet choreographer Richard Alston

On Friday May 12th, Year 11 and 12 dance students had the opportunity to meet Richard Alston at the Oxford Playhouse. Alston is a choreographer at The Place, London School of Contemporary dance and has made a huge contribution to modern dance in Britain.
We were very fortunate to be able to be in his pre-show talk where he spoke to us about his influences, choreographic ideas, personal training and about his current company, it was amazing and in all honesty, we were a little star struck!
We then watched his company perform 3 amazing pieces; Tangent, Chacony & An Italian in Madrid which just confirmed how brilliant he actually is, we did however, all disagree on which was our favourite piece! A great way to spend a Friday evening!
