Dancers celebrate exam success
LELANT’S Liz Nolan Theatre Dance School held a presentation party for their dancers at Hayle’s Beachside Holiday Park.
A presentation was made by Mayor of Hayle Jane Ninnes who also judged a movie star themed fancy dress competition.
Dancers were given awards and certificates for International Dance Teachers Association dance exams in ballet, tap, theatre craft, jazz, freestyle and adult tap held in the summer.
Liz Nolan said: “All pupils passed with 101 students receiving top marks of Distinction. Georgina Dennis and Alexandra Cooper received 94 which is nine marks above Distinction and outstanding achievement. Both these young ladies are now studying at university.”
Major award winners were -
Ballet - Freya Peters
Tap - Freya Stuckey
Theatre Craft - Lilia Rowe & Ellie Verran
Jazz - Rosanna Weatherly
Progress Award - Esther Martin
Liz said: “We have five International Dance Awards nominations in ballet and jazz for Rosanna Weatherly, Charlotte Brandreth Potter and Freya Peters. The girls will attend the awards in Manchester next February.”
The company’s Kids & Co production Away With The Fairies was held at St John's Hall, Penzance earlier this year and raised £800 for CLIC Sargent.
A new Kids & Co production will be held next year on March 20-22.
Auditions will be held at the end of November. For more information check out the Liz Nolan website and Facebook pages.
