It’s a cham­pion per­for­mance by dancer of year

Rochdale Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

AN up and com­ing young dance star swept the board by win­ning four freestyle com­pe­ti­tions and con­tem­po­rary dancer of the year.

Jes­sica But­ter­worth, of Turner’s Dance Stu­dio in Rochdale, won the un­der-16 Cham­pi­onship class con­tem­po­rary, solo, and slow dance com­pe­ti­tions as well as con­tem­po­rary dancer of the year - which earned her a tro­phy al­most as big as her!

The lat­est com­pe­ti­tion was held in Hind­ley, Wi­gan and in­volved dance schools and young dancers from all over the coun­try.

Due to Jess’s out­stand­ing suc­cess she has been cho­sen, by her teacher, renowned dancer and per­former, Paul Michael Jones, to as­sist in a brand new con­tem­po­rary/lyri­cal class at Turner’s, start­ing in the new year.

This is a paid role and will in­volve Jess, 15, demon­strat­ing dif­fer­ent moves and tech­niques to help, en­cour­age, and in­spire the next gen­er­a­tion of dancers.

As well as be­ing hugely tal­ented in con­tem­po­rary and freestyle danc­ing, Jess, who lives in Bacup, also trains in Latin Amer­i­can, Ball­room, and Hip-hop, as well as dab­bling in theatre too.
