CAPA College thrill at Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival 2019 

In November 2019 CAPA College returned to Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival with a ground-breaking new piece of choreography about the impact of climate change. Aged between 16 and 19, students from the leading Creative and Performing Arts College gave a spellbinding performance to an audience of over 2,000 people in York. 

A unique provision in the North of England, CAPA College provides full time Performing and Production Arts training to students aged 16-19. As Wakefield’s first DfE-funded Free School, it values the importance of providing opportunities for young people to train within the Arts. 

Each year Yorkshire Dance Schools Festival give a theme for participating groups to interpret. This year’s theme was ‘Reflections’.  

With global warming and environmental issues rapidly coming to the forefront of discussion in recent years, CAPA College’s performance tackled the difficult truths surrounding man-made climate change. It explored the physical consequences of rising seas, and the emotional impact on young people. This powerful choreography on the climate emergency was named ‘Rise’. 

The event showcased CAPA College students alongside children and young people from 56 other primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and community dance groups. Over 1,200 dancers performed at the non-competitive event over four days, with all ages and dance styles being showcased and celebrated. It was a sensational display of dance and an honour to perform amongst so many other talented schools. 

A stunning and thoughtful piece of choreography, ‘Rise’ showcased CAPA College’s exceptionally talented students. With alumni from the College going on to study at leading national and international conservatoires as well as taking up leading roles on the stage and screen, we’re sure there’s lots more to come from these rising stars. 

If you’re interested in joining us at CAPA College in September 2020 and taking up your place on the Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival stage next year, make sure you apply by Friday 24th January. You will find more information and a link to our online application form here.
