New dance piece to be unveiled

‘Dancing the decade – Britain 1940-1948’ features a series of new choreographic works by students from the School of Sport, Performing Arts and Leisure.

The show will be at the Arena Theatre, Wolverhampton, on May 11 at 7.30pm and May 12 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.

As part of the programme, choreographer and Senior Lecturer Dennie Wilson will be unveiling a new work titled ‘a nation’s Personal Best’. Featuring 16 dance students, the work explores the London Olympics of 1948 through dance and film.

Dennie says: “The final year students have worked as choreographers and dancers to create an evening of high quality, physical, entertaining and thought-provoking work.”

The music for ‘a nation’s Personal Best’ is composed by Ian Wallman, who Dennie collaborated with to create the Opening Ceremony for the European Indoor Athletics Championships in 2007.

Dennie adds: “I have a passion for sport and work in the arts and working on ‘a nation’s Personal Best’ has enabled me to take the experience of creating dance work for a huge sporting arena back into a theatrical environment.”
