Dance experience with Demi Essex

Students had an amazing dance experience this week with Ex-SJN student Demi Essex. 

On Thursday 12 October ex Sir Jonathan North student Demi Essex visited college to lead commercial dance sessions with Key Stage 3 and 4 students. Demi is now a freelance dance artist and model and leads her own dance company in Leicester.

Demi inspired Year 11 students with a piece to 'Lose my Breath' which was upbeat, energetic and full of attitude! She then taught Year 9 and they were challenged with new movements and complicated steps.  After-school Demi taught Year 10 Dancers and the whole room was buzzing, even Miss Matthew joined in and learnt some new moves!

Students will be performing their routines at the Expressive Arts Christmas Showcase in December and they are also hoping to perform at the prom fundraiser talent show after half term!

A big thank you to Demi and a well done to all students involved……it is great to see your commitment to dance and passion for the subject!
