As the Rugby World Cup draws to an end, with the approaching semi-finals and final, our student Luca reflects on his experiences rehearsing for and performing in the opening ceremony.

‘I had the amazing opportunity to be part of this event ¬†and I loved every second. I really learned a lot from it, because the rehearsal process was so different from what we usually have in college. We were rehearsing out side and sometimes whilst it was raining. We worked a lot around the real meaning of the sport. It surprised me at the beginning, not having a dance routine but at the same time, it was so challenging especially when we were creating the human pyramid. It was all physical work as rugby is.

Being part of it gave me the chance to work next to processional dancers in the industry and learn from them the ethic of working as a professional.
The stadium, the audience, the cameras and the energy during the show was unique, it’s a feeling that I will never forget!’
