Students Shine Whilst Supporting Strictly Come Dancing Stars

Performing Arts students from Knowsley Community College have been busy showcasing their talents across the region, as part of their internship with College partners, MD Productions.

This year’s busy Halloween period saw students work alongside Strictly Come Dancing Professionals, Faliva Cacace and Vincent Simone, at a large corporate event in the city centre. Students were tasked with teaching the choreography to the contestants, as well as partnering with them for the performance and opening the show in a fantastic group dance.

Students have also fronted the recent Police campaign to raise awareness of the dangers and consequences of girls and women getting involved in gangs. Filling the city centre dressed as models, prison guards and police officers, the students led an out of the ordinary catwalk, sporting police equipment including tags and handcuffs.

The students’ busy schedule didn’t stop there; they were also involved in performances at weddings, community fundraisers and some of the largest corporate events in Liverpool City Centre.

Carmel Clowes, the students’ tutor, explained ‘We are really proud of how professional and involved our students have been during their internships with MD Productions so far. They have been exposed to real industry experience and truly thrived.’

Students are working alongside their studies at Knowsley Community College, as well as preparing for this year’s College Pantomime, Beauty and the Beast on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of December. For tickets, please call: 0151 477 5880.
