Students put on a show for local ice hockey team

Performing arts students were literally dancing in the aisles at a Midland ice hockey match after being asked to provide the interval entertainment.

Students from City College Coventry, which sponsored the match between local outfit Coventry Blaze and the Hull Stingrays, provided live entertainment for the evening.

Music students warmed up the crowd in the bar before the match and student Lauren McAuley sang the national anthem to mark the 5.15pm face-off.

And dance students performed a specially-choreographed routine in the stands at half time, while tutors braved the ice to take part in a fun relay.

Adrian Middup, course organiser for the level three extended diploma in music, said: “Teaming up with Coventry Blaze gave us the chance to offer exciting opportunities to students on a range of courses and it was great to see each individual grab them with both hands.

“They learned a lot on the evening and we can now build on it in class.”
