Each year, BTEC learners share their creative talents by performing in the BTEC Showstopper Challenge. This year we had two wonderful groups and two talented solo performances at the 10th annual BTEC Awards ceremony.
Meet the 2020 Showstopper Challenge winners
Our BTEC Awards 2020 Showstopper Challenge winner of winners were Woodkirk Academy. Charlotte Goodair, Eliza Dunn, Ellen Garrett, Holly McLean, Isabel Dobson and Sophie Butters wowed the audience with a song from the musical, Dear Evan Hansen. They say that their performance has helped them to communicate that they are united amidst the pandemic and that their love for the world of theatre has inspired them to stay motivated on a daily basis.
Bridgwater & Taunton College
Ruth Hilborne and Nicky Rush from Bridgwater & Taunton College opened this year's Showstopper Challenge with an amazing dance performance. Ruth and Nicky say that they wanted to show how they could still connect through dance despite their distance and help lift the spirits of others.
Jodie Wiggins from East Norfolk Sixth Form College gave the audience goosebumps with her operatic performance. Jodie says that her BTEC course has helped her to explore a variety of singing styles and push her vocal skill, musical knowledge and repertoire to new levels.
Imogen Latta from North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College gave an incredibly powerful solo dance performance. Imogen wrote on her application that this performance mirrors her own life and how she has become proud of the person that she is and proud of her ancestry.
