Lakes pupils treat shoppers to street dance
Published at 09:27, Tuesday, 10 January 2012
SHOPPERS were recently brought to a stand-still recently when students from Lakes College treated them to a ‘flash mob’ performance.
Taking place in Workington’s town centre hub, the flash mob was performed, to music composed and choreographed by the college’s first cohort of performing arts students, to mark the release of the new 2012/13 college prospectus.
The prospectus offers information about all the courses taking place at Lakes College including the performing arts course the flash mob students are currently studying.
Along with being treated to public performances by the students, people are also able to meet some of the current students at the college through the release of the Lakes College Bloggers website.
This website and the prospectus introduces people to the college bloggers, who each month will discuss their experiences. Each blogger provides various insights into college life and how it is helping them in their endeavours.
College blogger, and face of the 2012/13 prospectus, 16-year-old Tristan Parker from Whitehaven, is one of the performing arts students who took part in the flash mob.
He said: “I had heard through word-of-mouth from people I know that they enjoyed coming to college so I decided to take a chance.
“My college experience so far has been much more positive than my school one; not only am I treated like an adult but the ‘no judgment’ policy is one of the main reasons I decided to come to college.
“I can express my personality through the way I look and my tutors encourage this.”
