Dance Success Year 8 Isla Maclean and Louisa Winship

Last year both girls appeared in English Youth Ballet at the Sunderland Empire in Swan Lake. Both girls re auditioned again at Christmas time through their dance schools (Buzz Dance Company and Trish and Trina Performance Academy) and were successful in gaining a position in Coppelia at Darlington Hippodrome. Rehearsals started early March, in every rehearsal the students are working with the professional company taking class and sharing the development of the work with the company. There are four public performances at the end of April.

Both girls have had a boost in confidence and have developed so much from working so closely with the professional dancers. This has given both students even more insight into the professional world and an even stronger desire to become professional dancers.
