Wildcats Showcase a Huge Success
On Thursday 22nd October over 70 full time students from Wildcats Post 16 Academy (Stamford School of Arts) took to the stage at the Corn Exchange in Broad Street to perform a number of group and solo dance and musical theatre pieces.
The event was attended by parents and friends of the students, along with a number of special guests including the Mayor of Stamford Cllr Sandall and Representatives from New College Stamford. Special guests also included local resident George Mackie who has supported the Wildcats with their additional building in Broad Street.
The evening saw students from across the Post 16 Academy perform group and solo pieces. Teeya Jackson from Stamford performed 'Roxie' from the musical Chicago. Teeya has been a member of Wildcats for many years, having moved on from the part time classes to the full time school. She is also a teacher for the younger children who attend part time classes.
Caz Dolby, Owner of Wildcats said 'The showcase is a great event which we hold each year to showcase the first half term's work. It forms a great preparation for the next upcoming performance which is at the 02 in Greenwich, London.'
The Post 16 Academy is now open for applications from students who wish to start in September 2016. Places are open to those in Year 11 who wish to undertake BTEC L3 Musical Theatre or Dance, or those in Year 13 who wish to study higher education in the form of an HND.
