Images from Made in Cornwall was a brilliant project put together to give the students experience working in front of the camera - as we all know media plays a huge part oin the arts, and a showreel can be essential in cases of applying for positions in music video's and on film. So Cornwall Dance school wanted to be able to provide our students with something a little bit different. The choreography was challenging and creative and most of the students have only been with us since christmas, they took it all in their stride and enjoyed every moment! That's what we like to see!
