Halifax young quick step­pers are strictly suc­cess­ful in na­tional dance au­di­tions

Halifax Courier - - Your News Your Pictures -

Halifax dance academy stu­dents are ‘quick-step­ping’ to suc­cess.

Strick­land Cook Theatre School stu­dent Matthew Flin­ders has suc­cess­fully au­di­tioned and gained a full-time place on a Dance and Mu­si­cal Theatre course at the pres­ti­gious Laine Theatre Arts in Lon­don.

Chloe Byrnes has won a re­gional heat of Miss Dance Great Bri­tain and will com­pete in the Grand Fi­nal at Black­pool Opera House in June.

Chloe Byrnes, Is­abelle Barker, Emma Ker­shaw and Lilly Beck­ett were all suc­cess­ful in au­di­tion­ing for The Sound of Mu­sic and will play four of the Von Trapp chil­dren at the Lawrence Bat­ley Theatre in April.

The fol­low­ing stu­dents have all been nom­i­nated for IDTA scholarships af­ter gain­ing top marks in re­cent Bal­let, Tap and Mod­ern ex­ams. Only 80 stu­dents in each sub­ject are nom­i­nated through­out the coun­try each year so to have so many nom­i­na­tions in one school is a great achieve­ment. The nom­i­nated stu­dents are Me­gan Rawl­ins, Chloe Byrnes, El­lie Wil­son, Holly Baines, Ella Mid­g­ley, Erin Ar­mitage, Mad­die Ar­mitage and Amelia Hen­der­son, pic­tured.

Leela Kapil has been ac­cepted as a Ju­nior As­so­ciate of the Royal Bal­let School.
