We are thrilled that our students were selected to represent Wales at the largest international dance competition for children. We feel very honoured that our students have been recognised as some of the best dancers in the country. We had a fantastic week at the Dance World Cup meeting dancers and celebrities from all over the world and we’re thrilled that Lucy was 4th in the World with her Jazz solo in a very tough category.
