Dancers put on a good show
07 July 2017
This week, Year 7 pupil Isabella Birch heard that she had been successful following her two auditions for the Centre for Advanced Dance Training at the Dancexchange in Birmingham. This is an amazing opportunity for Isabella; the CAT system is a programme of national acclaim and the training that she will receive is of a high professional standard. Isabella joins Sixth Form student Ruby Abbas who has been training at the Dancexchange for the past 12 months. Ruby will be performing on the Birmingham Hippodrome’s main stage later this month.
Ruby also had a very successful weekend taking part in the ‘Icon Season 4’ Dance competition. The event attracts competitors from all over the country and following six rounds Ruby went into the final, dancing against five other performers. She ended the weekend winning the 2nd place trophy – an incredible achievement.
Congratulations to both girls; we look forward to seeing how their dancing progresses over the course of the forthcoming academic year.
