    Imagine a world with the key to life. Ancient civilisations let the knowledge of such a key run like a golden thread through their lives, implicit in the teachings of all the prophets and great people in world history.

"Silent Voices"

    The dance tells the story of the elimination of more than 10,000 men, women and children at the hands of the Argentine government between 1976 and 1983. Even today, the exact numbers of 'The Disappeared' and their fates are unknown. In this performance we show the haunting portrayal of 'The Disappeared' and the grieving mothers left behind with no answers.

COWES HIGH SCHOOL, Cowes, Isle of Wight
"That damned elusive Pimpernel!"

    The French Court, 1789. A time of flamboyance and frivolity. Shattering this façade, carnage and revolution. Across the channel, one man knows he must risk all to rescue the woman he loves. Leaving the gentile tedium of England, our gallant hero confounds the baying masses. When politics become personal, what would you do for 'that Crazy little thing called Love'?

ESHER C OF E HIGH SCHOOL, Esher, Surrey
"Don't Drink and Drive........Think!"

    Inspired by the campaign 'Don't Drink and Drive, Think!' our dance is split into 3 sections. We open with a night out and subsequent alcohol consumption. Section 2 demonstrates the power those who drive whilst being intoxicated have on others. Our final section explores the emotions experienced by both the drivers and those who have lost someone close to them.

HAVANT COLLEGE, Havant, Hampshire
"All for One"

    We soldiers marched off to battle, leaving our dearest behind. We fought as a team, a unit. Now we are no longer soldiers, but prisoners of war. As we're questioned and beaten, we think of those we dutifully left at home. What effect does this have on them? Are our captors forced into this? Will we ever be free again?

HORNDEAN TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE, Portsmouth, Hampshire
"Shall We Dance?"

    Why do we choose to dance? Cultural? Spiritual? Dialogue between performer and audience, which transcends the boundaries of language? Can we answer such questions? Or is it simply down to our own interpretations? Join us in our interpretation of dance, as a form of escapism, a personal challenge, part of everyday life and purely for enjoyment! So.......Shall We Dance?

MATTHEW ARNOLD SCHOOL, Oxford, Oxfordshire
"Dreams"

    The theme of our performance is Dreams. It is based around the people who influence our lives and shape the individuals we become. In the dance a young, innocent girl has a nightmare about the pressures to conform. It shows how everyday encounters can manipulate our behaviour and change the way we are.

PORTCHESTER COMMUNITY SCHOOL, Portchester, Hampshire
"Lest We Forget"

    We've all lost someone dear to us

"Bombay Dreams : Mumbai Nightmares"

    There was nowhere to hide, nowhere to run
    They locked all the doors, pulled out a gun
    The fear in the air, terror in the crowd
    The sights were horrific, the gunshots so loud
    On November 26th 2008 terrorists began a series of coordinated attacks across Mumbai. Our piece honours the 173 people that were brutally murdered during those events.

THE GRANGE SCHOOL, Christchurch, Dorset
"The Ocean's Wish"

    Despite the global ban on commercial whaling, the government of Japan hunts and slaughters thousands of whales and dolphins every year. Japan attempts to defend these hunts by calling it scientific research, but this deadly scientific research is nothing more than unlawful, cruel and unnecessary! We say: "Let's save these beautiful mammals and consign commercial whaling to history forever".

WALTON HIGH, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire
"Yes We Can"

    Every day throughout history, even today in 2009, there are those who continue to tell us - to tell me - that we're peddling a false hope.

"BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! BE YOURSELF!"

    Stretch is the new lad in school and life isn't easy for him. The school is already divided by two rival crews and when Stretch gets involved with a girl from the other side things get nasty. Too many young people take the wrong path in life; it doesn't have to be this way.

ST GEORGE'S SCHOOL, Newport, Isle of Wight
"Everyone's a Winner"

    No matter who you are, where you come from in the world, if you are black, white, rich or poor it's the taking part that matters and everyone's a winner.

THE ROMSEY COMMUNITY SCHOOL, Romsey, Hampshire
"Chasing Expression"

    The theft of an idea inspires a chase through avenues of influence. Watch the idea evolve as 'Expression' reveals an alternative direction to 'Inspiration'. These two mischievous characters leap through ideas of the subconscious, twisting and turning between influences and experiences of their journey. Watch the story play out and see that our thoughts really can 'transport us away.'

Books and equipment are not the only baggage some kids bring to school and often behind a face there can be turmoil, emptiness and heartbreak. With help we can turn away with hopes and dreams, we do believe!!!

    "The Olympic Torch: Hypocrisy or Hope ?"

      When first conceived, the Olympics were seen as a beacon of peace in a world of conflict. Over the years, violent events and illegal substance abuse have haunted the games to a point where some may consider the original ideal hypocrisy. Our Rock Challenge team looks towards London 2012; is the Olympic Torch today a symbol of hypocrisy or hope?

    "Don?t believe what you read in the papers"

      We are here to question, make you stop and think,
      You remember being young, wanting to fit in!
      Hanging around street corners, looking cool always the plan,
      Yes, now we wear hoodies! Does that make us a gang?
      We?re the next generation, what will we become?
      Don?t believe what you read in the papers - don?t judge us all as one!

You have 8 minutes to see the real us, it may not be what you expect!

    THEMES

    CHRIST THE KING COLLEGE, Newport, Isle of Wight
    "Ballad of the blade"

      Strong passions are part of teenage life, from the adrenaline-fuelled aggression of knife crime created when insult drives revenge, to the devotion of first love and how unrequited love produces vicious, deadly jealousy. Those who love, even the young, know the unbearable despair of loss and the grief that leads us to lose the will to live.

    COSTELLO TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE, Basingstoke, Hampshire
    "Injustice? It Just Is!"

      The representation of cartoons disguise the harsh realities that people have to face. If you strip away the happy façade in cartoons and fairy tales what are you left with? Reality! Drugs! Rape! A memory tattooed. A shadow never leaving, never fading. No happy endings. Does reality have to be like this? Injustice? It just is!

    HAMBLE COMMUNITY SPORTS COLLEGE, Southampton, Hampshire
    "Just a little bit of history repeating!"

      The Washington Post quoted - Anyone who says we're in recession or heading into one, especially the worst since the Great Depression is making up his own definition of recession!! - Wasn't that what they said before The Wall Street Crash 1929? 80 years later have we learnt our lesson or is it just a little bit of history repeating.....

    HEADINGTON SCHOOL, Oxfordshire, Oxfordshire
    "Crime and Punishment"

      The number of offences committed by females has leapt 25% over the last 3 years. Our behaviour is changing. Fuelled by underage drinking, girls choose to lead reckless criminal lives.

    RYEISH GREEN SCHOOL, Reading, Berkshire

    SIR JOHN COLFOX SCHOOL AND WEYMOUTH COLLEGE, Bridport, Dorset
    "Chained..."

      Many children are forced into employment, whether their families are ill, poor or they are born into this lifestyle. They work long days, sometimes over 56 hours per week, and some don't get paid. These children are seen as cheap material although they are the true working cogs of the industry. Can they be unchained from this way of living?

    SOMERTON MIDDLE SCHOOL, Cowes, Isle of Wight
    "1492 Conquest of Paradise?"

      In 1492, Christopher Columbus and his men landed at what are now called The Bahamas. They claimed the land for Spain, and forced western culture on the Natives. Native societies were devastated by the introduction of diseases, slavery, and the move to plantations. The 1992 film was called '1492 Conquest of Paradise', but did Columbus Conquer paradise, or destroy it?

    TESTWOOD SPORTS COLLEGE, Southampton, Hampshire
    "The Death of David Jones"

      It's 1984 and Margaret Thatcher announces the closure of all non-profitable mines. Thousands of jobs are lost. Arthur Scargill starts a national strike, an unofficial national strike. Communities are torn apart as blacklegs and scabs battle on the picket line, riot police sandwiched in-between. Charging, hitting, kicking and throwing; will the rule of law prevail over the rule of mob?

    "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur!"

      How would you feel about something else's blood being on your hands? How would you feel about being wrapped in a dead body? Would you kill an animal just to look good? Capturing, torturing and killing animals for their fur is a cruel and violent practice, one which makes us question - where does our fur come from?

    "Signs in Life"

      As a teenager it?s hard to decide where you belong. Often the way you look and music you like categorises you throughout your life, and can produce tension and rivalry. Every now and then you get a sign in your life, and whether it is good or bad it can bring together the most unlikely of people or old friends.

    THEMES

    CHESHAM PARK COMMUNITY COLLEGE, Chesham, Buckinghamshire
    "MELTDOWN"

      Meltdown shows how the breakdown of a family unit can emotionally affect teenagers. This piece shows two distressed families where parents split as a result of alcohol abuse and domestic violence. This leaves their teenage children frustrated and isolated depending on their growing friendship and the support of their friends to carry them through this traumatic period of their life.

    DENBIGH SCHOOL, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire
    "Can science solve our problems?"

      It is a fool who plays it cool by making his world a little colder. With each day that passes we are no wiser but still older. Science can show us the way, but it is only us who can follow. Now the heat brings floods and with them even more sorrow.

    HERTSWOOD SCHOOL, Borehamwood, Hertfordshire
    "In Your Genes"

      Have you ever thought about what the future holds for you? Isn't it a scary thought to think some things are decided long before you are even born? Through our piece we aim to explore the affect of Genetic disorders and how they impact the life of the person and those around them.

    MONK'S WALK SCHOOL, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire
    "Knife and Death"

      Knife and Death. In a society where the status of knives is promoted and encouraged by The Media, we explore a teenager's struggle with her home-life leading her to look for a sense of belonging in all the wrong places. Instead she finds judgement, violence and death along the way. Where did it all go wrong? Is it too late to change?

    NORTH HERTS COLLEGE, Stevenage, Hertfordshire
    - No show

    RICKMANSWORTH SCHOOL, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
    "Orpheus Descending"

      Tragically, Eurydice collapses in Orpheus's arms during their marriage and is taken from him by the Angels of Death to stand by Hades's side in the underworld. Refusing to accept his wife's fate believing that love will triumph over death, Orpheus sets off to find her not knowing what lies on the path ahead. And we are going with him.

    SEEVIC COLLEGE, Benfleet, Essex
    "When We Walk...?"

      We each leave our print on the planet, a cause and effect of our existence. However our traces are beginning to show. We need to stop wasting energy and protect our atmosphere and the place we call our own. Take notice of our footprints, our carbon footprints. We Walk, Do you...?

    THE HEMEL HEMPSTEAD SCHOOL, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire
    Theme for the website expected from the school later ?"

    THE WYE VALLEY SCHOOL, Bourne End, Buckinghamshire
    "Happily Ever After"

      A familiar tale I?m sure you will find, with goodies, baddies and a Fairy Gok Father. Our story is a classic tale of unjust oppression, and good overcoming evil with a triumphant reward. As with all tales it begins with "Once upon a time", but the question is will there be a "Happily ever after" ?

    GALLEY HILL PRIMARY SCHOOL, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire (Showcasing Junior Team)
    "Roald Dahl's Cinderella"

      Darling little Cinderella was locked up in the slimy cellar. She bellowed "Help" and "Let me out". The magic fairy heard her shout and quickly, in no time at all Cindy was at the palace ball. I guess you think you know this story. You don't. The real one's much more gory.

    TUDOR PRIMARY SCHOOL, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire (Showcasing Junior Team)
    "The diversity of our world"

      Our theme is about the diversity of the world we live in. We have used ideas from Africa, India, Spain and America. We asked our friends, family and students from Hemel Hempstead School to help us. Our first track is from Sing Up which helps children to develop confidence and find their voice. We hope you like it, thank you.

    THEMES

    DURRINGTON HIGH SCHOOL, Worthing, West Sussex
    "Caged, bound and restricted"

      The demise from normality to perceived madness, focussing on Louis Wain a 20th century artist, committed to a mental hospital for his strange behaviour. Has society progressed since the days of lunatic asylums or are people's views, beliefs and behaviour still caged, bound and restricted ?

    MILLAIS SCHOOL, Horsham, West Sussex
    "Bitten and Bled"

      Malaria is one of the world's biggest killers. 90% of malaria-related deaths occur in Sub-Saharan Africa - 2 deaths per minute. Our dance portrays the melancholy and unacceptable fact that generations are dying because medication and mosquito nets are arriving too late to save the victims. To this day people still suffer mosquitoes, biting, sickness, suffering, help, death, and survival.

    OATHALL COMMUNITY COLLEGE, Haywards Heath, West Sussex
    "Operation Pied Piper"

      September 1939. Nearly 3 million people were evacuated from cities in danger from enemy bombs to safety in the countryside. Most were school children, labelled like luggage, unaware of where they were going or when they would return. Facing the trauma of separation the Nation was urged by Churchill to unite and strive towards victory, 'whatever the cost may be'.

    ORIEL HIGH SCHOOL, Crawley, West Sussex
    "Origins"

      The Fish swam out of the ocean, grew legs and they started walking. The Apes climbed down from the trees, grew tall and started talking. 2009 is the 200th & 150th Anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth and book 'The Origin of Species'. Our dance how one man believed we became the way we are!

    QUEEN ELIZABETH II SILVER JUBILEE SCHOOL, Horsham, West Sussex
    "Your World, Your Choice"

      Re-cycling is the whole school project at QEII School this term. Through highlighting the 3Rs, "Reduce, Re-Use, Re-Cycle", we have been able to increase understanding of how each and every one of us can make a difference to the world and its future.

    TANBRIDGE HOUSE SCHOOL, Horsham, West Sussex
    "Tessera"

      Our piece explores the four classical Greek elements and how they explain patterns in nature. Each element has its own characteristics. Whilst all can co-exist in harmony, our piece questions the outcome of a shift in power when one attempts to become more dominant. What will be left when this fight for supremacy ends?

    THE FOREST SCHOOL, Horsham, West Sussex
    "Man or Machines ?"

      This is the first year that The Forest School has entered Rock Challenge®. Our entry is titled ?Man or Machines? With ever increasing ?controls? over our lives and more and more legislation are we being conditioned to become robots in a brave new world? We look into a future where humans are fighting against the robots to save their individuality.

    WORTHING COLLEGE, Worthing, West Sussex
    "Lines Divide, Hope Unites"

      Our dance is based on the book "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas". It?s a tale of hope and friendship in the face of unspeakable and inhuman horror. The dance is in three main sections beginning with a harmonious Germany. The second illustrates the disintegration of society. Lastly we show the meeting and bond between two friends who face death together.

    DAVISON HIGH SCHOOL FOR GIRLS, Worthing, West Sussex (Premier Showcasing Team)
    "The Impossibility of Forgetting"

      Kathe Kollwitz had a long talk with her son when he decided to volunteer for the war. She gave him her blessing and then regretted it for the rest of her life. The news of his death came late in 1914 and of course the devastation of that loss was something that she, as an artist, tried to translate into her art.

    "In Seventh Heaven?"

      Rhianne is in the nightclub "Seventh Heaven" and is offered drugs. Everyone in the club says "no", but the pressure is too much for Rhianne who gives in to temptation. Her life then goes into a downward spiral and she loses everything, including her friends. If Rhianne is given the chance to go back, will she make the same mistake?

    ELLON ACADEMY, Ellon, Aberdeenshire
    "Web Of Lies"

      Lies, deception, dishonesty. Lies tear us up inside. For our politician, his life?s work falls apart when his wife and son tell lies, twisting and distorting the truth. Lies, the evil of our kind, weave their way into every person?s mind through the media. Don?t let lies over run, don?t let them stay and haunt you. We want the truth.

    FRASERBURGH ACADEMY, Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire
    "Be Proud"

      The Olympics is an event used to showcase the hardest working athletes from across the world. The Olympics are symbolic of the ideal that with effort and perseverance anyone can achieve anything in life. By not giving up when obstacles are thrown in your path, on the winner's stand or in the crowd, you have the right to feel proud.

    KEMNAY ACADEMY, Kemnay, Aberdeenshire
    "Smells like teen spirits"

      As many of our committee members are at the driving age, we have become more aware of the responsibility of driving. We realise the dangers of driving with friends especially with the added pressure of giving peers lifts home. Our performance tells the story of a girl who's night out didn't go to plan...

    MACKIE ACADEMY, Stonehaven, Kincardineshire
    "Respect: It's Elementary"

      Our Rock Challenge addresses the issue of the environment and man's disrespect for planet Earth. The message that we are trying to portray in our performance is that of the unparalleled strength of Mother Nature. We feel it is time that we all realised that we are guests on this planet and should treat it with the respect it deserves.

    TURRIFF ACADEMY, Turriff, Aberdeenshire
    "Gang and Knife Culture in Schools"

      Our performance is an insight into the world of a pupil who is affected by gang culture and violence.

We then rewind to see an alternative outcome to show there is room for everyone in today?s society.
